A birthday card or two

Hello bloggers and a very Happy Saturday to everyone.
I  have 2 cards to show today. The first I made for a friend's birthday and the second is just a different colour, but made it as a sample for a class that I did.

I saw this card sometime back  HERE and just loved it. Unfortunately, I don't have the exact link for it, but Wenche does have some gorgeous cards to show.

The first one I made with Kaisercraft paper and the fairy cutout in the corner is from a Graphic 45 'Once upon a Springtime' range that I have used so sparingly.

The doily and the flower in the centre are Marianne Design dies.

The sentiment is also from Marianne Design.

The Flourish is from Joycrafts.

Metal corners and pearls to finish.

The second card is much the same just different papers and picture.

For this one I inked a mesh design with a stencil, just to give the paper a different look. It is a double sided paper.

I used a different Marianne Design doily .

The picture is from a vintage sheet also of Marianne design.

It is also finished with corners and a pearl.

This is such an easy card to make but very pretty.

I will enter the following challenges:

Enjoy your weekend, I think it will be a cloudy and cooler one for us, but I am not complaining as we had planted some young plants and they will have time to settle. Hope to see you soon. Take care.

Love Ursula
