Happy Birthday

I took some time out to do some colouring for my card today, something with which I need a lot more practice.

I coloured Tilda with Big Ribbon with copics and cut her out using the out of the box technique.
There are loads of tutorials out there for this.
The Happy Birthday is also a Creatable Die.
The butterflies are Cheery Lynns Exotic Butterflies .
The corner is Memory Box's Madera Corner (part of mine snapped off while using it in the Cuttlebug, very unhappy).
The paper used are from My minds Eye Ohh La La Paper pad.
Inking was done with the Antique Linen Distress Ink Pad.
The flowers I made with the medium Retro flower punch.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and leaving a comment,
I do so love hearing from you.

Cards For Men

Hello Everyone
I hope you all had a very enjoyable Easter and were able to spend it with family and friends.
Ours was quiet but did get to spend some quality time with daughter Kathy and granddaughters Chloe and Aimee.

Onto my cards...............
I was asked to make twenty cards as a prize for a raffle and to please include some cards for men.
Below are two that I have come up with.

I have used pre-coloured digital images from FredSheSaid and added dimensional magic to them (which unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo's) but it does make the images pop.
The plaid backgrounds where from a Paper Pizazz Jewel Plaids Booklet given to me by my friend Angie which are perfect for those cards for men, thank you Angie.
The striped background is a digital paper from SheryK Designs.
I'm afraid I don't know which die the branches are they were another gift from Angie.

The background on the card below is the Mesh Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Many thanks for stopping by today.
