Smooches and Birthdays

I have 3 cards for you today. I created two birthday cards for twin cousins and I thought I'd share them with you.

I'm entering this first card into the Addicted to CAS Challenge which has the code word of "Blue". This card was created for Sam (the first of the twins).

Stamps: Birthday Bits (Simon Says Stamp)
Dies: Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Midnight Muse
Ink: Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Midnight Muse, Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Silver Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)

This next one is for Sasha, the little girl.

I just love the watercolored background combined with the gold embossing. One of my favorite color combos!

Stamps: Birthday Celebration (Simon Says Stamp), Birthday Wishes (Mama Elephant)
Paper: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Strathmore Watercolor
Ink: Victorian Velvet (Distress Ink), Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Assorted Copics
Other: Gold embossing powder, Gold sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)

Next up is a card I created for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. It's anything goes this week, so I thought I'd make an "anytime" card to give to my husband.

This card is especially funny because (long story) I have a fear of cows. It'll make him laugh when I give it to him!

Stamps: Chubby Chums (Paper Smooches)
Dies: Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp), Linked Hearts (Paper Smooches)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Smoky Slate
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Assorted Copics
