Birthday cards

Hi everyone! Thanks for all the well wishes! We got better just in time to enjoy the rain-soaked weekend! I'm sure the sun will be out again sometime, right?

Here are two late-arriving birthday cards I made for two of my good friends who had birthdays earlier this month.



This card used Year of Flowers: Violets and the sentiment from Vintage Picnic.



The next card was inspired by Maile Belles' card here (scroll down to last card). I also used the tiny butterfly from Butterfly Dreams.


Thanks for stopping by!
Melissa

Really great cards Melissa! Very different looks to each of them but I think the second just edges it as my favourite because it's nice and bold!

Oh very pretty Melissa! I love the second card you did. Love the frame sentiment. I tried to order that last night and was out of stock. Hopefully I will get it soon. Nice job!

I love the clean style of both of these! And I love how you filled in the white space of the sentiment on the second one with the little butterflies, neat!!
