Rudolf Day for June with snippets

I am dashing in for June Rudolf Day a little later than I had anticipated! I missed Sarn's posts due to blogger dashboard issues and I don't seem to have a clue what day it is at the moment, lol!
I have gone for two trees again - the small Christmas Tree Flourish from Inkylicious, with a musical background.
Here is the first...
I used the edge of the tree to make the border and Adirondack inks in Aqua and Pool. the sentiment is also from Inkylicious. I did add irridescent glitter, but you can't really see it in the photo.
For my second card I used the same stamps with wild honey distress ink and versafine tuxedo black.
The Dies are all from spellbinders and the red spots are red stickles.
I used snippets for both, so I'll be skipping off to Miss Di's Snippet playground with them too.
Meg and I spent yesterday looking round at Birmingham University. It was definitely worth going to look at possibilities for courses next year, although a little disappointing in how elitist some of them are. I won't have a rant, but I did feel a bit cross at one point and then very proud of how resilient Megan is. 
Thanks for looking!

I really like the aqua colours Sal but I think the second just edges it for me.

I know just what you mean about the Unis but hope Meg gets what she is after.

Two very marvelous cards with the same supplies and how different each one turned out. I can't pick a favorite as I love both of them! Really did admire the way you made the blue border on #1, and that was a very elegant layout too. #2 was so dramatic, yet still very vintage with the black and antique cream. The little sentiment was so pretty with the fist I thought it was an antique brooch. So very pretty. TFS & Hugs.

Beautiful cards! At first I didn't believe that these were the same tree stamps as they look so different on each card. I love how you created a border with the tree.

Two super cards Sally, I love how you made two very different looking cards with the same stamp. The second is my favourite, the black die cuts look stunning.
