The first is for one of my crafting friends whose birthday is today. She hasn't actually received this card yet as I had a senior moment and thought her birthday was next week. I'll be giving her it tomorrow at our weekly crafting session. Happy birthday Dawn anyway.
The second card is for a friend at work who shares the same birthday as me....lucky her. Lol. So Happy birthday to Jane too.
So as you can see the cards are similar. Both are made using the Bloomin' with Beauty stamp set ( which is retiring ...boo hoo). The ribbon is Pretty in Pink taffeta and the cardstock is WW, Pretty in Pink and the new Pink Pirouette. Pink Pirouette is a very pale pink so very useful for baby cards, weddings and of course birthday cards.
Dawn's card also has the En Francais big background stamp and beads and pin from the gorgeous Pretties Kit (also retiring and currently half price at £11.63!)
Jane's card has flowers from the Vintage Vogue set which have pearl centres also from the Pretties Kit.
The pink dots on both are actually pearlescent so a little prettier than they look in the photos.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
