I made these cards for the DT call at Where Creativity meets C9. I got to know about this DT call at Jess instagram a week back and had these cards design in mind from then. Love Concord & 9th products they are very different and their designs are very artistic and that is what I love about them.

I am also entering these cards to The Paper Players - Something sweet challenge

I am a great fan of Essentials by Ellen products and their store. When I saw their Calling all artists special challenge at The classroom I could not help myself and I had to give a try. 
So here is my card I used Essentials by Ellen - bohemian garden for the background and the sentiment is from Mondo Magnolia both stamp sets are by Julie Ebersole. I love her monday videos. I stamped the flowers and leaves on a watercolors paper using distress ink and then using a paintbrush and water I colored them.  Splattered peacock feathers distress ink and I gold embossed the sentiment and fussy cut it. Used Coats metallic gold thread around the sentiment. For the background I used one of my favorite brands My Favorite Things square grid cover up background dienamics.
