The irresistible diagonal pattern

I was experimenting with the diagonal pattern, and loved it so much that I ended up making a bunch of cards. 
Tried different types of pattern paper on various colored card stocks, but has kept the look really simple as I want to highlight the diagonal pattern in the background. 

Made this card using a  purple card stock with a cream pattern paper,  used a paper lace to finish off the look. 
The cards stock and Purple paper lace, I used for this card are few years old and I have a hard time getting rid of any craft supplies, so I keep most of them piled up, and go back every now and then to use those.

Entering the above card for the following challenge: 

This one is with purple card stock and a shiny maroon paper, decided to add a black strip and a maroon beads string, love this finished card very much.

I love the colors of this card, white and blue compliment each other so well! Added a white daisy and a matching lace to finish off this card.
The above card is up for the challenge:

This card reminds me of Sakuras snowflakes!, used a light peach card stock and peach colored cherry blossoms punched out. Used glitter pen to finish the look of the flowers and added a silvery lace to finish off the card.

The whole bunch, was suppose to be 6 cards of 2 cards in each color, but my daughter got her hands on the missing peach colored one here and made a card. How can I say no to a budding talent!!
 Entering these cards for the following challenge:
