Two Cards For Etsy Customer

Hello and thanks for stopping by today! I am sharing two cards that I made over the weekend for a regular Etsy customer of mine. She always has me think outside the box! She will tell me about the person that she needs a card for. She tells me colors,theme and what she wants on the card. Sometimes it takes me awhile to come up with something I think will be good enough. She needed a sunflower card,and wanted the sunflowers to be 3-d to look realistic. I used my cricut to cut the flowers and the spritzer tool to add an interesting touch. The next card she asked me to make is for an accountant. She wanted math signs($,+,=,-,etc.)....I don't have anything like that at all. It still needed to be pretty for a woman ....I was at a loss. I asked my husband for help,he gave me some ledger paper,then I used a digital stamp from MDS and printed it out along with the word 'friend'....I hope she likes it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
