Happy Birthday

Hello my stampy friends! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
I wanted to share a couple of beautiful birthday cards that I made for 2 very good friends.




All I did is use some gorgeous papers from Prima called Epiphany, and the Royal Stand-Ups die by Sizzix designed by the very talented Stephanie Barnard of Stamps of Life.



The sentiment is a Paper Trey Ink stamp called Boutique Borders:Birthday.
The sequins, die cuts and metal butterfly were all part of the add-on package that I purchased with the pretty Prima papers. I just did a little sponging around the edges of the sentiment panel.  I think these cards look much more complicated than they really were to put together! And I like that! Don't you???

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
