Birthday Cards...

Here are 2 Birthday cards I recently made for a couple of crafting friends.

The first one uses some of my favorite wrapping paper again! The shape just 'evolved'! It started off as a 1/3 & 2/3 front opening - but then I put it on its side and this happened!!! Had to then work out how it could be secured for display so added some holes and ribbon for the recipient to tie!

The second card uses some gorgeous glittered paper I got in a pad from The Papermill Shop - they had loads of colour combos's in the pads - and other bits to match too!

The beads hanging from the bow were part of some old jewellery I took apart! I used some gorgeous gold flakes on Anya's top.

I've heard that both friends liked their cards :) I'm so glad....................crafters are the worse kinda people to make cards for!!!!!!!!!!!!!
