Spring/Easter Card Kit Swap - Nonni's kit

I'm doing a "Card Kit Swap" with Nonni of Nonni's Handmade Cards and Marina of My Perfect Life. Each of us has sent the others a spring/Easter themed kir and we make 2-3 cards each using mainly the same supplies, but we can add some of our own stash too as we're keeping it really simple, fun and stress-free. 
Yesterday we showed what we've made using Marina's kit, today it's Nonni's kit and tomorrow it's mine. On Thursday we show a few extra cards mixing the kits.
Here's a photo of Nonni's kit:

First I made a card with the beautiful flower bouquet from Nonni's kit. I had to get inventive here as I messed up on several things here, coloring and cutting, so behind the window it went, placed onto a sponged sky and die cut hills. The sentiment is a generic one, describing the meaning of flowers.
This card is for: 
Inkspirational - Spring
Use Your Stuff - #259 Flowers
Moving along with the Times - #42 Into The Woods

Second I made a card using another of Nonni's flower images. This time I placed it onto a tag. The green DP is also from the kit.
This card is for:
Crafty Calendar - April showners/ or Spring
Through the Purple Haze - #122 Use a Tag
Sparkles Forum Challenges - #90 Let's go Green

I have really enjoyed seeing your kits and cards, Pia! The last kit was adorable with the little critters, and this one is beautiful with the pretty flowers. Great use of the images and colors! huggers, de

Marina said...

Two fabulous cards. How clever you were to hide your mistakes with the window frame - it doesn't look at all contrived - the colouring looks perfect. I messed mine up and dumped it!

I think we all paired that 3 flower image with the green paper! It looks great with kraft and the tag shape,

Nonni said...

Great cards, Pia! I love the subtle woodgrain bg behind the flower window (also a fun idea!) and you know how much I love tags in a card... We actually used the same image for making a tag, great minds think alike! :) The retro look of your second card is very cute. Well done with the kit!!

Lovely idea making a card with a window and the flowers behind, and the hills look great on the inked sky! Love very much the tag, fab design and the leaves of the flowers match so well with the dp pattern!!The green gem is a lovely touch!!
