Two challenges in one day...

Yesterday was so nice, the sun was shining in my craftroom and I had time to play! I ended up making these two cards for challenges...

The first one is for this weeks challenge at Daring Cardmakers -this week we had a sketch to work from. The background paper is from a stack by Brenda Pinnick and the birthday cake stamp by Magnolia. I used a super duper punch for the white scallop circle and finished it off with gel pen and Stickles.




And this card is for the challenge at Scrummy Stash Cafe. The theme this week is Love, and I decided that rather than make a mushy card for 'im 'indoors, I'd make a birthday card for my special friend 'cos I love her to bits :) This is a kickstand card so I've added an extra photo to show how it looks both closed and standing open. I'm really pleased with it, I can see me making more of these kickstand cards. The background paper is from my scraps box, the main stamped image is by Sugar Nellie and the swirl stamps are part of a floral set by Rhonna Ferrar (Autumn Leaves). The tag stamps are from a set by Stamps Away. I really enjoyed making this one :)
