Happy Happy Birthday

A couple of cards for you today.  

With this first one I'm playing along with The Heart Desires Challenge #16.  As if there wasn't enough inspiration in those gorgeous photos, I went with just the colour scheme.

Ok, a little bit of Peacock Feathers snuck into my colour scheme, but we won't talk about that.

With the second card I'm playing along with CAS Watercolour Challenge, Silhouette.

The background is made from an inked and spritzed embossing plate, with the silhouette stamped a couple of times with the MISTI to get a good clean impression.

I'm over on the STAMPlorations blog tonight talking ice cream.  Here's a taster ;)


  1. Ha, that monster just had me laughing out loud, Shirley, he's fabulous ... the little silhouette is lovely with the delicate pink and green soft florals ... and the ice cream with the flakes, simply scrumptious! Hugs, Anita :)
