Shocker! Another Birthday card!

My friend Denise had a birthday last week. We were going out to lunch but I got sick with the icks that seem to be going around so it has been postponed until this week. I couldn't wait to give her card to her so I did that Sunday. (The spoiled woman got her gift early!) I love how the card came out!
I used Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Tempting Turquoise paper. I used Tempting Turquoise ink and stamped the background, the two other images and "birthday wishes" with the Inkadinkado stamp set Garden Flowers. The border punch is Martha Stewart's deep lattice (I think that is what it is called). The flowers are Primas that I got a very long time ago.

Special Friend Birthday card

This card is for a special friend and "adopted" daughter. She likes hearts and purple. I struggled with the right combo. But I really like how the Spellbinder's Nested Hearts turned out. I used Stampin' Up Concord Crush for the base and Elegant Eggplant ink on the pink DCWV paper. I sprayed the paper doily with Pearl Glimmer Mist.

Surprise! More birthday cards!

Here are another couple birthday cards. The left one was for a teen boy and the right for a 20ish woman! I wanted something fast and these did the trick.
The squares on the boy card are The Guy Stack from DCWV. Both cards have the Hippie Chick Cuttlebug font. The girl card also has some Queen & Co. felt that I have been hoarding and made myself use!
