I used the beautiful Quote Collection 4 for my cards. On the first card. I made an acrylic block background by inking a large block with several colors of distress inks, spritzing with water then pressing a piece of white card stock onto the block. After it dried, I stamped the bookmark image and quote on top and trimmed. Two piece of pale lime card stock were die cut using the Beautiful Borders dies, attached to black card stock then attached under my image. The beautiful dp is from the ODBD Blooming Garden collection paper. I colored some seam ribbon to match and added some sequins (a few of those were also colored with Copics to match).

A Friend 03018
On my second card, I stamped the bamboo frame, colored & die cut it with a rectangle. I used a craft knife to cut out the inside before attaching it on top of my quote.  The two sizes of dragonflies were stamped on scraps of the same blue dp (ODBD Blooming Garden collection) I used for the background. After fussy cutting them, I added stickles on top. I added some straw like woven ribbon and two brads I colored with Copics to match.
