Candle Birthday and Wild for You

Two birthday cards I made this week. The one above is for a friend.
I was inspired by a card by Aly Dosdall on the We R Memory Keepers blog.
Washi by WeR, flames by Cricut glitter paper.

The one below is for my grandson, who will turn 5 soon.
Inspired by a card by Heather Ruwe.
All materials from Simon Says Stamp's April Card Kit - Wild and Colorful.

Upcycled Birthday Box

When I finished the Brie cheese that was in this box, I realized that it would be
a perfect fit for the round shaker card I had made for my friend's birthday.
It will also hold the necklace I'm giving her, and she can use it afterwards
for whatever she wants.
All of the papers and embellishments, except the little flowers, are from 
Bo Bunny's Secret Garden collection. The inside and the bottom 
are decorated as well.

Round Shaker Birthday Card

Second attempt at a round shaker card, with a pastel rainbow background
and a rainbow of sequins. Much better! Inspired by Simon Says Stamp's 
(Although the outer circle cardstock and the glitter cardstock word YOU look pink,
they are really white.) 

Cardstock - Bazzill
Glitter cardstock - Cricut
Inks - Simon Says Stamp
Sentiment - Lawn Fawn


This was my first attempt at a rainbow shaker card. It was to be a birthday card 
for a friend, but I was unhappy with the rainbow background and I also used too
many rainbow sequins. So it became a Spring design piece - I'll just tack it up
somewhere. Going to try again!

I was inspired by Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge - Make a Rainbow,
and also by Laura Bassen's Round Shaker Card.

Happy Easter

Will be sending these to my two youngest grandchildren, James (4) 
and Jesse (8), who live in Guam. Thanks to Cricut for the designs, 
and Bazzill for the card stock. Below: the inside sentiments.
