One Sheet Wonder- 9 matching cards

Here is my latest attempt at a one sheet wonder project.  It was a very successful attempt too.  I managed to get 9 cards out of this one.   I like to do a OSW now and then because I can get 7-9 great cards done in one sitting and it gets my creative juices flowing while filling up my box of extra cards.  Now I have some cards for the RAK/Birthday list!
To start, I used my color coach color wheel to come up a color scheme and I chose the Polka Dot & Petals set from SU.  
I stamped up one sheet of white cardstock to look like this and then cut it up into random sized squares and rectangles.
And here are the cards I created... all 9 of them!  
My favorite ones are the ones that I used black accents on.  They seem to have a bit more pizzaz to me, but they're all nice.
Did you notice those brass charm flowers on that birthday card?  I'll have some exciting news coming very soon about where you can get those and other great charms for reasonable prices! Stay tuned to find out more about that.  

On to the rest of the cards....
I love using really big flowers... isn't that one fun?!
And last but not least... I really love that black ribbon with the white flowers on it.  I wish I had more but I just about used it up and don't remember where I got it.  

Thanks for visiting.  See you tomorrow!

If you hadn't blabbed the secret to these cards, I never would have guessed it wasn't pre-printed pattern paper. AMAZING!! And, yes, the black does give them a boost over the top. Off to wait patiently for tomorrow's posting...
