I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.  I am playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.   Here is the inspiration photo.  






Here is the first card:  Birthday Wishes!




I played off of the gray, peach, and pink tones in the photo. My kids told me I was very low on Birthday themed cards, so I decided to make two.  


For the first card I used smokey shadow card stock, Holiday Greens stamp set and coordinating dies, and the sentiment is from Colorpop Autumn Kit.  The floral is stamping in Melon Berry.   I finished with a few black sequins on this one.



Here is the second card:  Happy Birthday!





Both are very similar.  Just changed up the color of the floral, the sentiment, and which  background panel would get the texture.   I did swipe direct to paper the versamark pad to create some added texture on the background.  




The second card uses all of the same except the sentiment is from Tulip Time. The floral image is stamped in Autumn Rose.  I finished with a few clear sparkle sequins.



As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Betty
