You are going to love her cards today! 

Hello, it’s Amy and I’m thrilled to be back again guesting for the awesome Belated 2nd Birthday Bash!  I couldn’t wait to play along in a couple more of the challenges.  Here’s a quick peek at both of my cards:

Thankful duo by Amy Tsuruta for Winnie and Walter

My thankful card was inspired by Heather’s Color Challenge:  Coral ● Lime ● Aqua

The In Bloom: Paulina’s Greenery Cutaways are absolutely stunning, aren’t they?  I layered aqua and gold card stock.  The sentiments are from the Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs.  I stamped the friendship sentiment on the scallop strip from the Essentials:  Noelle Cutaways.  Love the scallop rectangle as my card base.  I did a smidge of watercoloring in the middle to capture lime color.

Next up is another card using the Essentials: Noelle Cutaways as the base.  This card was inspired by Heather H’s Gold + Watercoloring Challenge.

I knew that I wanted to incorporate the Mini Scenery: Madison stamp into my design.  I used my MISTI to stamp it in Versmark and follow it up with clear embossing powder.  I quickly watercolored it with my Zig Clean Color Markers.  Isn’t the In a Word: Thanks Cutaway awesome in gold glitter card stock?  The sentiment is the same one that I used in my other card, from Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs.

A big thanks to Shay and for all the W&W Design Team members for their awesome inspiration!
