Birthday, Birthday, Birthday!



My neighbor asked me to make up a variety of birthday cards to give to her mom in a couple of weeks for her birthday!  Have to say, I love when others ask me to make cards and when someone thanks me for a card I have sent or given them.  Crafting is my relaxation and outlet...and it is even better when others appreciate it!

So...here's one of the birthday cards using the colors from the current Embellish Challenge.  I love these colors...kraft, green and black.  So pretty...go check out all the amazing cards for this challenge.  Very inspiring!
I also needed a couple thank you notes for work...and liked the colors of this challenge, so I kept going and made a few more thank you cards.  I love the way Jean did her pearl's on this card so I gave it a short on the butterfly antennae!  So cute!
Finally, one more thank you using the same color theme!
