This card could easily be flipped into a Christmas card instead of a birthday card. I wanted to make something a little more outdoorsy for a birthday. I love the colors in this card. I popped up the cardinal by Dee's Distinctively dies. It was a set of 8 different cardinals.
The branch is by Impression Obsession, I cut that out in a color to match my base and the grayish brown in the wood paper background. The Happy Birthday sentiment is by Taylored Expressions.
I used a black and white gingham ribbon to finish it off. I made the double bow using the Zutter Bow-it-all. If you haven't tried out this tool yet and love to use bows on your projects, you definitely should! I can make so many perfect bows in a short period of time!! I LOVE it!

I typically don't like the color peach. I think it stems from all peach home decor in the late 80's early 90's. However, I LOVE the looks of this card!! I used peach flowers cut with the Cheery Lynn Daisy strip. And a peach frame cut out from Taylored Expressions. I found a distressed looking pattern paper that coordinated and then embossed it with an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions. I wanted a subtle difference for the card base so used fossil kraft paper. To tie it in with the front I added leaves and flower center from dies by MFTstamps (dienamics).
Maybe peach is starting to grow on me!

Love this window die by Memory Box. Makes a quick and easy card. I used a small floral printed fabric as the background and added a strip of brown paper as a chair rail. Cut out a window in matching brown paper. I backed the window with a square of cloud paper. The valance is made from an Impression Obsession border die. I added cats to give the card whimsy! They are also from Impression Obsession.

To make this card I used a cutting template from Pazzles library and adjusted it to the size I needed. I cut it out and inked the pieces. A google eye completed the hedgehog. The stitched clouds and wispy grass are by Taylored Expressions. The fence and flowers are by Impression Obsessions. I chose a piece of polka dot paper out of my scraps to complete the look of the card.

Next I cut out a cream and a cherry red flower using the Cheery Lynn Judy's Bloom die. I manipulated the flowers with my stylus before layering and topping with a large gem.
The perfect little pick me up for your friends!
