Card Holders

My friend is having a fundraiser night for our Relay for Life team next year.  I can't attend the night so she asked for a donation of a prize.  So I have gone through my card collection and made up two card packs with a seven cards in each to cover variety of occasions. 

I have used Bazzill card for both holders.  Also got to use a new purchase - 'Just the Edge' Cardstock Strips.  They come in a pack of 20 pieces, 2 of each style all pre-cut.  Makes borders easy. :-) The first holder I punched flowers with my large and medium sized retro flower punch.  Then added  purple star stickers to the centres.  Dug out my Quirky Font Stickers to create the word 'Cards'.  Then finished the holder with this lovely purple satin ribbon.

For this card holder I used another edge strip.  Printed out this fantastic 'Poppies' image from Cardmadfairy Creations.  I coloured it slightly with my watercolour pencils and added some leftover sticker pieces to the butterfly.   The word 'Cards' I used rub-on and cut them into shape.  Added a flower which I created with black lace and two punched out large retro flowers and red bling for the centre.  And again a ribbon (black satin) around the middle to hold the holder closed.

I would like to enter these holders into the following challenges.
