Two Birthday Cards

I really liked the daisy windows card we made at Joanne's last month (the first card on this blog post) and so I've made another one using a fave colour combo of Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  I've stepped this card up a tad - I've used two daisy die cuts for each window and added strips of ribbon and paper.

Here's the envelope and the inside of the card.  I'm loving the Itty Bitty Shapes punches and stamps - they're so dinky and sweet!

This next card uses the lovely floral/butterfly stamp from the Garden Collage set.  The card measures 12 cms square.  I inked the stamp with Broken China Distress Ink and then added some SU! Night of Navy ink with a sponge dauber.  I've sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the butterfly wings.  I've attached a Word Window tag to the ribbon with silver cord and finished off the front with 3 aqua gems.

Here's the envelope and the inside of the card.  More Itty Bitty stamps and punches used!
