A Couple of Birthday cards

Just a couple of birthday cards I made this morning.

This first one was actually for my mum's birthday, which is today! She loved it as well! This one is for SC371 for the sketch, La-La Land's Easel Card Challenge and CR84FN48 to use chartreuse, lavender and grey. Here's the colour inspiration from CR84FN.


And here's my card for it.

My next card is not for anyone in particular - just a card to add to my huge stash. This is for Friday Mashup's Challenge #45 to use penguins and/or the spotlighting technique. All my penguins are Christmas- type stamps and have now been put away and I couldn't be bothered to get them back out, so I made a punched penguin using the owl punch in the same style as Rita's. This is also for Cupcake Craft Challenge #178 to use red and pink. There is a little bit of black and yellow in there too, but it's mostly pink and red.

And that's all my birthday cards for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
