Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello friends! Today I'd like to share 2 very quick and easy cards. They're made exactly alike, just different flowers.
The flowers and design paper are part of Heartfelt Creations 'Backyard Blossoms' collection. These cards are very easy to mail.
For the pink card I've used the Garden's Edge Coneflower Stamp and die and for the yellow card the Backyard Blossoms Stamp and die.
I'll list the products I've used and the directions on how to make them.
