More birthday card inspiration.

Hello there, well, I had a lovely day yesterday shame you have to injure being a year older to have a special day - lol!

Anyway, I would like to share with you the other 2 cards I made after being inspired by my birthday card from Stampin' Up!

As you can see, it's basically the same as yesterdays only I just stepped it up a little bit by using the "Elegant Bouquet" embossing folder and running the "Whisper White" card stock through the Big Shot.  This helps add some interest to the top right hand corner that seemed a bit empty on my first card.

My second card is basically the same again, only this time I added a gift parcel and thread with a button and changed the placement of the sentiment, all of which, along with the colour palette, gives it a more mascaline feel I think.

I don't have anyone to give these cards to, I was just playing which sometimes is all you want to do rather than have the presure of wanting to create something perfect so that it's good enough for recipient.

Another thing, I've had a comment and a couple of messages about doing a tutorial for the box I showed you earlier in the week, from my "Countdown to Christmas series.  The current plan is to have one ready to publish on Sunday, so stay tuned.

That's all from me, hope you have a fabulous day....xx
