Mojo Monday and glitter strips

I was all set to enter this card in the Papertrey Ink "Make it Monday" challenge which was to use a strip of scor-tape covered in glitter, and combine it with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, but realized I was using way too many Verve products and needed to feature some PTI so I made the second card in this post but I'm too lazy to do two postings. : ) I appologize. Anyway, the card stock base is ocean tides from PTI, I have no idea where the darker greens came from. The stamps are from Verve "Accent notes" and "Celebrating You. And there is a glitter strip running down the center of the horizontal panel (a little hard to see). The second picture gives a better picture of the dimension of the flower in the center of the medallion. It is 4 or 5 circles punched out of vellum, scrunched up and held together with a jeweled brad from SU!
The second card uses one of the free downloadable tags PTI created for their 4th anniversary festivities last month. I had colored it in before I figured out what to do with it, resulting in something that I was less than happy with and having a hard time incorporating into a project. But, inspired by the turquoise glitter (Martha Stewart) I used on the glitter strip, I added glitter to the top and bottom sections, and voila! It fit perfectly!! The sentiment is from "Celebrating You" by Verve and I thought this would make a perfect lunch box note (sized 3" square) for my husband, but it might also make a cute birthday gift tag.
