My three cards

Okay, cards are done. Whew!!! Not my best work, but not my worst either. Wink

First, my sister's card. I remembered at the last minute that she's turning 30. I was going to put something else in the circle tag before that. Anyhow, I like this card least of all of them. On the inside, I stamped "happy birthday to you" with a new acrylic stamp I bought.

The thank you note for my midwife. I have some smaller paper flowers I wanted to make a bouquet out of for the right hand side, but didn't have the right stuff to attach it. Figured it looked nice as it was. Smile The "thank you" is embossed with silver (and I made QUITE the mess with the embossing powder as I tried to use the tray I bought to catch it in, and it didn't work like I thought it would - not fun to clean up!)

The last card I did was for my mom (her birthday is this weekend). I grabbed the idea from pagemaps.com in their cardmaps. I think I will trim some of the bottom of the green strip, as it's not balanced.

That grungeboard is so cool! Love how you painted it silver and put the white flowers on top. The red circle underneath makes it pop too.

What are you using to cut the cool edges? I love the first card's edging.

Great job!

thanks, Charys. Wink I used the Creative Memories scallop cutter to do it (and on the thank you card too). I was wishing I had some smaller scallop cutting tools. I know I have scissors somewhere, but the kids use them and they go missing. So I just cut the scallops big. I took the design concept of that first one from one of your thank you cards you've posted. Wink

They turned out great. I really like the thank you card. I like how your swirl turned out.
