Day 3 and final day of our blog hope.  I hope you have enjoyed hopping as much as we enjoyed sharing with you some of the wonderful new sets at Daydream Designs.
I just could not decide which card to showcase for this third day, so I am showing you two cards!

For this first card I used the Garden Accessories Color Set again. (just love these seed packets!)

 Lots of layers, some twine, and a button brad.  I wish you could see the detail of the brad - it really looks like a small button with four holes.

And for this last card I used the Poppies For You Color Set:

 I put some black liquid pearls in the center of the poppies.  It may not show up well, but I fussy cut and layered the flower petals for dimension.

Thank you for hopping with us.  I feature one of Diane's sets each week so if you would like to follow my blog to see more of her sets showcased, I sure wouldn't mind - LOL.
