Birthday cards

Had to make a couple of birthday cards for friends this week





Backgrounds for both cards are done with Dylusion inks and sprays, with the first one having a bit of the new Ranger Heirloom gold spray added.  I think the stamp on the first one is Paperbag Studio and the second one is Crafty Individuals, which I have used loads of time, it's great for journaling too.

  11. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
