Cards from CSAD Day 2

Many of you saw these cards posted to Card Sketch A Day yesterday where Susan had designed a sketch from them. I thought to post them today along with all the details, I had lots fun designing these cards!

I did have the general idea but was unsure with anything else. I had picked up a few containers of Flower Soft in the fall and didn’t have the chance to use it. Here was my chance!
