Two Simple cards

Hello and Happy Wednesday! It's hump day! I can see the weekend on the horizon!
I've had these Papertrey Ink flowers colored for awhile and am late with so many cards so I needed to do something with them. I colored up some leaves and CASEd a card that Nichole Heady posted for the May release. They are rather simple in design, but aren't those flowers great?!

I often use the copic colors that Nichole gives in her store (on the copics page) for each of her stores colors. Often they are perfect! I always check Debbie Olson's blog too. she usually shows her marker colors.
For the leaves I used my own (I think) combination.
YG21, YG91, YG93 and YG95
For the pink flower I used R30, R32 and R35
The orange flower is YR12, YR15 and YR18
You may be seeing this card again. I'm trying another and stamping the center rectangle with versamark and a bg stamp so it's not so plain. If I like the effect I'll post it!
The white lines are drawn with a ruler and and Inkssentials pen. I sponged the edges of the card with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Thanks for coming by today!
