Birthday celebrations

Hi everyone just a quick post to show a couple of birthday cards that have now been received. The first was for my friend Michele, whose birthday was yesterday and what a lovely day it was, unlike today!

 

I made a centre step card and used a create a card die for the frame and inked through with Victorian Velvet DI. I added embossed card for the side panels and centre and the sentiment topper is a Sue Wilson die. I finished with cosmic shimmer pearl glue and a bow which matched perfectly although it doesn't look like it in the photo!

This next card was for my BiL whose birthday is today:


I used a matching stamp and embossing folder from Couture Creations with SU Crumb Cake ink. The butterfly is one of the matching dies to this set.

Finally it's time for the latest Less is More challenge which is as follows:

 This week we have a COLOUR  challenge for you to follow.
NON-TRADITIONAL Colour CHRISTMAS CARD
SO.....
NO red, NO green
You may use metallics and neutrals but please avoid any red or green.


This is a freebie stamp from Creative Stamping which I stamped with SU Soft Suede and used PM's to add some colour and a few cosmic shimmer pearls. I love this stamp and it's only one of a large set that came with the magazine and they are all fab!
 Hope you've all had a good weekend, I have a busy week ahead with a big choir evening in London on Tuesday and our usual choir practice on Wednesday and then Charlie is coming on Thursday for 4 days :) He is also bringing his Mum and Dad too :) We are having friends over as well on Saturday so it's all go!

Oh and I've just noticed that I have a lovely new follower, Joan of night time stamping, a fab creative blog! Welcome Joan :)
