CAS-ual Friday stamps: more April release cards

Hi everyone!  I have a couple more cards to share from the CAS-ual Friday Stamps April release.  Wasn't it a fun release?
First up is a card using Mums the Word. I have to say, this set is my favorite this month.  The beautiful flowers and sentiments are right up my alley!  I used Spellbinders new A2 Scalloped Borders for the bottom of this.  I think this border is so pretty along the bottom.  I stamped the flower blossoms using Gina K and SU inks (I find these work the best with solid image stamps).  I cut them out and added rhinestones to the centers.
Next is a card using Bold Wishes.  There is no pattern paper on this card (crazy, right?), but the elements in this set makes it easy to do some simple stamping to create your own patterns.  I added some mulberry flowers, rhinestones and ribbon accents.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with some close up pictures.
