My second card I used my new Bird Punch from Stampin Up and the new Bontaical Designer Series Paper from the Occasion Mini.....I LOVE this paper.

Gorgeous cards, Gloria! I love your hydrangea with the chalks. Using that technique with that stamp never crossed my mind, so in advance, thanks for the great idea. {{Hugs}}
