A few birthday cards

Just a few birthday cards for my stash that I made today...

This first one is for  Play Date Café's Challenge #114 to use plum, burgundy and gold and for SC367 for the sketch. Now I don't like Bravo Burgundy at all unless it's with pink and gold is not a colour of choice either so I thought this was going to turn out awful, but I really love all the embossing on this one and how elegant it looks! Here's the colour swatch from Play date Café.


And here's my card for it.

My next card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #80 (I won the free stamp set again this week - yay! This time I chose Spring Baskets for my Easter cards!) and for CR84FN46 to use light pink, yellow and neutrals. I pulled out my old retired Spring Fling DSP for another card on my next post and ended up using it on 3 cards this morning - such pretty colours though! Here's the colour swatch from CR84FN.


And here's my card for it.

And my final birthday card for this post is for Farm Fresh Friday's Friday Spyday Challenge #15 (I used the sketch as a starting point, but did miss a layer out as my image was too big to include it and still see it!), Just Add Ink's Challenge #100 to use crowns (I made my own patterned paper using the crown from Artistic Etchings) and for Papertake Weekly's Challenge to use die cuts and make it cute!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
