Some Birthday Cards for Some Challenges

Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying this day off!! It is not great weather here in Connecticut. Unfortunately the forecast for the next ten day is very dismal and I am so looking forward to spring. I want to plant my flowers!!

Instead of being outside, I was able to create a couple of cards in my craft room for some challenges. Both cards are the same design but I switched it up with the colors.

For the first card, I made it more girly using yellow and greens as the main colors.

I used My Favorite Things Birthday Cake Die-namic to cut out scraps of yellow pattern paper to form the cake. Green scraps were cut for the icing.

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #385 and this weeks Color Throwdown #540 for my card designs.

I swapped the rectangle in the sketch out for my cake. The sentiments on the circle I masked out to get the exact words I wanted.

The darker blue color was hard for me to figure out on this card so I decided to make it the candles. I should have also done the sentiment but was too lazy to go back and fix it.

For my second card, I used the both challenges, as well as Seize the Birthday Challenge #164-Anything Goes, no topping. I made the exact same card but die cut different scraps I had in my stash.

I also used a different sentiment stamp but again, had to do some masking to fit it into a circle.

Both cards are a bit on the bright side and I did not do this on purpose. I think it is my unconscious telling me I want spring weather!!

That is all from me today. I thank you for stopping by. Have a FABULOUS night!!
