Playing with Tonic Dies

Good Morning Crafters, yesterday after experiencing a big problem with my ebosser I decided to give it a go and make sure it was still going to work (I managed to get a embossing folder stuck in my ebosser and hubby had a terrible job getting it out, and even had to dismantle it to do so) and as I had just received these new tonic dies I felt that I could create two birthday cards.
I placed the die on a piece of A4 card in the middle towards the right and then fan it through the machine, and then folded the card in two and placed a piece of colour card behind the cut out. I then used the flower dies to make the flowers by cutting them out 3 times and then coloured them with inkpads with the colour of of the card that I had put behind the cut out. Then used my embossing tool to create shape and then layered them up and placed them on the flowers of the cut out, and in the center I have placed a coloured pearl.
The final thing was the sentiment stamped on the card.
These Cards are to be entered in the following Challenges:-
