Birthday Wish

Here's My Card for the Friday Mashup Challenge #105.  This week it's a sketch challenge with the added option of a birthday theme.
This was very timely as I had a couple of birthday cards to make this weekend.  I've been wanting to use my French Foliage set to make a masculine card and this was just the inspiration I needed.

I am trying to use some of the retiring colours, so I pulled out Bravo Burgundy (can't remember the last time I used this!), More Mustard and River Rock (not going to miss this one, lol).  For the centre image I used a stamp from the Lovely as a Tree set. I quite like the result so I think this will be one of the cards for my next class.

And, just in case you are curious, this is the other card I made; this one is not for any challenges.

Recycled Flowers

Here's My Card for The Paper Players Challenge # 140.   In honour of National Earth Month, the  challenge was to use a recycled or re-purposed item on a project 

I decided to use a picture from a card I had received some time ago.  I pulled out the centre of the card that held the note but kept the main part as I really liked the image. 

Here's the original card: 

And here's the finished project:

I cut the image and the Pacific Point background with the SU Labels Framelits and pierced the blue layer.  I added a few pearls, a bit of Crochet Trim and put the whole thing on an embossed background.  Voila! a whole new card!

Thanks for stopping by!
