The greeting and bees on the top card came from the retired Honey Bee stamp set and Detailed Bee Dies.  Sorry for using retired product, but those sunflowers just needed bees!

The butterfly is from Butterfly Gala.

For these 2 cards, I added the greeting from Butterfly Gala stamped using Misty Moonlight and Poppy Parade inks, matted with Misty Moonlight and Poppy Parade card stock, and cut out using my Big Shot and Stitched Nested Label Dies.

The pearls were colored using Night of Navy and Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends.
