Pieced flowers for Moxie and SC275

Good morning everyone! I have a couple of cards today, truly they were quick!
I am having fun with the Moxie paper piecing challenge and created this 1st card with a Lockhart knitting basket stamp that I am using today as a flower basket. I stamped directly onto a more solid colour of the Crate paper and cut the basket out, omitting the yarn balls. The flowers are cut from the Crate paper line "Brook" that I have been indulging in this week and I placed each little flower on a piece of dimensional foam. I just love the colour palette in these sheets! I used this week's SC sketch275. The panels are pierced on the sides.
The next card is TRULY a 5 minute card. It is the first time that I have used this bird and branch punch from SU. I have had it a while, but have not made time to use it, so here it is. I punched the Crate paper sheet once and then turned it over to the brown solid side and punched out another wing. I trimmed it down to a smaller scale and layered over the other wing for a little dimension. The horizontal border is a Martha Setwart punch and I stamped the PTI birthday sentiment directly onto it in SU basic brown ink. I think this is masculine enough to send to a guy?
Have a great day and thanks for taking a peek!
