Birthday wishes & Thank you cards

I love this sketch ~ Fall-To Layout 83 on the Clean & Simple blog, and as I need two cards for this week, it is perfect for both:)

Birthday Wishes
The base card is white and the yellow paper is American Crafts. The other side of the paper is flowery, so I cut 3 different sized flowers and curled the petals up slightly. The centre of the flowers are 3 colours of card candy from Craftworkcards. The sentiment is stamped with pinecone versacolor ink and the stamp is from Printworks Clearly Defined. The green punched edge is made using the Martha Stewart 'doily lace' edger punch. 

The base card is Bazzill 'vanilla' cardstock (I love that colour!) and the paper is DCWV  'Once upon a time'.  The pink card along the side is punched with the EKSuccess scalloped scallop edge punch. The sentiment is computer generated using 'primer print' and 'scriptina' fonts and raised with foam pads.  The three flowers I made by cutting irregular circles in different sizes, distressing the edges and crumpling them a little.  Then layered together and secured with a pearl brad in each.

The Flowers

Thanks for stopping by :)

These are beautiful Sarah. Love the way the centres of the flowers on the first card are off-centre and adore the flowers on the second. Vx
