Mystery Card Class-- Part 1

I held a fun class the other night-- unlike any class I've ever held. It was a Mystery Card Class. A customer of mine found this idea from another demonstrator on a blog and I thought it was fabulous. We made 10 cards today- 5 designs- 2 of each. I gave them all the supplies for the card including stamped and punched images. Then they created a card with it without my sample. Then I showed them my sample and on the second version they could copy mine, theirs or someone elses at the table. It was really fun! Everyone had a great time. So for the next few days I'm going to show you their first cards and the sample.
First, here are the girls:

And here are their cards for the first project:

The sample card that I made is a 4 1/4" Whisper White square. It has a layer of Pretty in Pink on top with a layer of Certainly Celery that I ran through the Big Shot using the Elegant Bouquet Impression Folder and scalloped the right edge. This card has several elements of the new Eggcelent Eggs Kit from the Occasions Mini. The strip across the middle and the flowers and leaves are all from that kit (as are the rhinestones used on the girls cards.) The flowers were layered with three parts and leaves and added to the card with gold brads. Lastly I stamped the words "For You" from the All Holidays set and added some White Taffeta Ribbon around the middle. I think this is a perfect spring/Easter card. I can't wait to show you the other cards from the class.
