My cards for this month used the following products..

The fairy pods were stamped onto parchment paper with white embossing powder then highlighted with clear winkastella.
For the background I used Evergreen bough and shaded lilac distress ink the Rose stencil is designed by Lavinia stamps and is available from  sweet poppy stencils. i then highlighted the border with a purple glitter pen  

For card 2 I used 

For the background I used worn liptsick and squeezed lemonade  distress inks
First I stamped the zen flower 3 onto my card stock, then masked them before stamping the thistles, leaving the zen flower masked, I used ink dusters to do the background I then stamped zen blossom with scattered straw distress ink. Gave the flowers a stem using the fairy pod flower stamp drew in a border freehand. final touch was dots of glitter around outside of main flower then decoupaged  another flower on top of front flower embellished with red glitter pen and a black bead.
