My Creative Time 52nd Edition Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!
Today is My Creative Time's release day. What a fun week it's been, full of new products and lots of fun inspiration! I've had so much fun viewing the sneaks each day. If you've arrived from super fabulous Nikki's Blog, then you are on the right track, if you would like to start at the beginning, click here.
I made two quick birthday cards with the You're My Lucky Charm set and the new In Stitches die. The first one I did a watercolor "smooshing" technique on the background paper. I also added a small piece on pattern paper along the right edge for a bit of interest.
The second card I stamped the same design on some pink card stock and edges it on both sides with the same pattern paper. Super quick and easy!
