Cups and Succulents

Hi there!  I'm popping in today with a trio of cards that I created using the fun Simon Says Stamp set Cups and Succulents.  I've loved succulent pants ever since I was a kid and saw how my grandma would grow chicks and hens in her garden.  I not only have different types of succulent plants growing outside in my own garden but also inside my house in McCoy pottery that I collect.  Succulents are easy to grow and have such wonderful texture and colors.  If you're interested in taking a look, I've created a succulent Pinterest board which you can see here.
I used the Retro Sketches Challenge #138 for each card, but rotated the layout for each one.  I colored each image using Copic markers and used sentiments from the Hero Arts stamp set Everyday Sayings.  This was also a good way to use up some of my scraps of designer paper and card stock since I used smaller pieces on each card.  I'm entering these cards over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is to use the color kraft on your card or project.
This is just one of the many succulent planters I have in my home.
 Have a great day!

These look wonderful - love the way you just slightly changed the design for each one and incorporated embossing with the d/p.
