Birthday passionettes!!!

WOW!! So many people that I know celebrate their birthdays in the month of August, like mum and two of my Passionettes ( this is what my Stampin'Up! downline group is called thanks to Rebbecca). So of course I made sure I sent them a stamped card each * smile*. First was Rebbecca who celebrated her birthday on Wednesday and this was her card. You will notice I ve used the same stamped image like on mum s card but didn't decoupaged it and by choosing a different layout I have made it a lot more modern and young. The Elegant Eggplant card base was stamped using the flower heads from the Heartfelt set with Elegant Eggplant ink, the image was stamped with Lavender Lace , Certainly Celery and Elegant Eggplant, the Certainly Celery layer was stamped using the Distressed background in Old Olive ink and tied with a lenght of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon. Sentiment added with my favourite set ever ( as far as sentiments sets go LOL) the uber cool Circle of Friendship. And I found out that sweet Bekka liked it!!! YAY!!! Also the flower heads were glittered to the max but I did this after taking the photo.
Next was Donna s special day this Thursday and her card was this one

Rose Red card base with Pumpkin Pie designer paper ( have you got yours while they re still on offer? ask me about it ) Whisper White card stock, I ve cut a oval using the nesties and made the scalloped edge around it using my Threading water punch, the flowers are from the Heartfelt once again and have been watercoloured using the ink pads and markers, the sentiment if from the Happy Everything set and the wide stitched Rose Red ribbon from the Fairy tale collection on page 87. Nice and bright card and yes of course I had a sweet pm from Donna to thank me and she loved it!!! Girls hope you had fabulous birthdays and here to many more. Love and kisses for Donna and Bekka !!!

ps. also a very Happy Birthday to my mama, love you. M xx
