Stocking up on Birthday Cards


A few days ago, I was surprised to discover that my stock of birthday cards was running perilously low, so I am trying to make some now.

The first card here was made using rub ons (the buildings) and a very old All Night Media balloons stamp.  I'd like to enter this into Curtain Call  (Confetti crush) and My Time to Craft (Up, up and away).

The second card was going to be a 'white on white', but I really couldn't get the panel with the sentiment to stand out enough so  decided to add a little pink. (I hope it doesn't look too much like a wedding card!). The panel is a Stampin Up stamp with a matching punch , and I added a sentiment (unknown) and used the same ink to colour the tips of the white flowers. I know the ribbon looks grey in the photo , but it's a pearlescent white. I'd like to enter  Crafty Creations (white plus one other colour) and Seize the Birthday ( white on white or ag - well, I nearly made the optional theme!).
