2 looks using Nestabilities

This first card was made using my new circle scalloped nestabilities, I wanted to use bright spring colours and green and yellow came to mind, the colours are really fresh.

The second card came about by accident, when I cut the green card for the first card, I didn't realise that I had cut a square card and that the 'hole' that was left could actually be used to make another card, but that's just what I did.

I stamped and embossed the front of the card, then placed acetate behind the aperture, then added a butterfly and some flowers, and voila I had made another card from my nesties.

I'm hoping to make some more of this kind of card as a lot of people have said they like it, and I'm hoping that when I come to do another that it turns out just as well as my 'flukey' one.

My first ever ATC, maybe not as good as some that I have seen, but as it was my first I don't think it's too bad.
