Quick and easy birthday card

I came across this color cue challenge at the WPlus9 blog, and I loved the color combination. So I decided to make a quick card. The only thing is that I didn't have time to take a picture of my card before the deadline, so I couldn't participate in the challenge. But I still wanted to share the card with you.

I had a scrap piece of white card stock that was already cut to the hight of the card, so I decided to stamp the flower stamps on it in coral making a background. I stamped Birthday Wishes with brown ink and put a brown scrap piece of paper behind. The sentiment is placed on the card with pop dots, creating some dimension.

Thinking of you

This is a card I created for my mom. We live quite far away from each other, and I wanted to send her a card to let her know that I was thinking of her. My mom loves purple and everything that has to do with nature, so I thought this card would be perfect for her.

I first cut the three little squares and stamped a different butterfly from the Designer Butterflies set on each of them. Then I placed the squares with pop dots on a purple scrap piece of paper, and finally I stamped the sentiment underneath.
