Two cards I made this morning

I love making cards using my own photographs and this morning was just so dull and cold and miserable out there I thought these would look more cheerful :o) My friend Pat created the trellis and I used it to make the backing for the clematis. I'm not too good at decoupage as I don't usually do it but I thought the clematis lent itself well to this technique.
Pat tubed my azalea photograph and I created the border with it, edging it with Martha Stewart punch and matted both the topper and the border on gold mirri card.
Materials used;
Pink and mauve hammered basecard from PMS
Gold mirri card
stamped sentiments
Scraps of ribbon
Cuttlebug corner die
Martha Stewart punch
Glamour dust
Silicone glue
