Two cards - The Sweetest, a Baby Shower and more Sue Wilson Craft Dies

Happy Day Crafters!  Hope you are enjoying this lovely weekend! 
I have 2 fun cards to share with you today.  The first was a funky one (in hot pink and Zebra theme for a little Diva Girl), that was so fun to put together using multiple die-cut pieces;
I've used the lovely faux quilled leaves dies by Sue Wilson.  Check out Sue's amazing line of elegant Craft Dies and Embossing Folders found at Creative Expressions.

 Sue Wilson's Craft Dies are not only elegant, but unique, intricate and totally gorgeous. She uses these her own steel dies and new embossing folders on all of her beautiful creations along with other products like Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, JustRite, Spellbinders and much more.  Loving her products and can't wait to try 'em all. To see her entire collection, (and/or/to order for UK crafters), check out the Creative Expressions Site.
