Happy Birthday

Good afternoon ,Do hope your all wrapped up keeping warm and safe.Gosh it is bitter winter sure is on it's way or even
So i have been busy this morning making a couple of birthday cards.

The first one is for my friends birthday and must be in post in the morning if it is going to get there on time.Already had one belated birthday wish this week oops {Sorry Cheryl}
I have used magnolia Tilda falling in the leaves love this image.Well having her birthday right in middle of October Well surpose to be Autumn but the feel this morning winter has come early..lolAnyways i have used copics to colour in the image,Design Papers are my fav from Kaisercraft."Peachy Keen Collection"
Stamped her onto the top note die from Stampin up,fixed with 3d foam pads.
The ribbons are from an RAK and just love em!,the bow is Papermania .Buttons are from my stash.I have distressed the edges of the d/Papers with tim Holtz distressing tool,and also used Friskas patterened ruler to rip the backing papers and then used Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist added water and brushed the distressed edges with it.For a different look although doesnt show up so well in photo.Flowers Prima and leaves from Wild Orchard Crafts.

I am entering this card into the Crafty pad challenge this week is Distress
or Torn edges and i have bothSir Stampalot monthly Challenge: Autumn Breezers ,Buttons & Bows Crazy for you Challenge: Fall /AutumnStampin for weekend:Halloween /Fall

My second creation today also needs to get in the post tomorrow .This is a male 40th Birthday card.I have used the gorgeous image from Lilly of the Valley ans coloured with copics,Stamped with memento ink onto tope note die cut from Stampin up!

The Design Papers are from my crafty stash these where from Papercellar.Thought this goes well with the image.
I have added some beautiful ribbon i received in a swap not so long ago,with bead embellishements on.I normally hate doing male cards as dont realy want to put flowers on and use very little embellishments .as dont want it too look too girlie.B
I hope i have got a happy medium by using this ribbon and a few blue pearls to match the blue in the paper.
Also added peel off letters to make a 40th banner along the bottom.Now i think it looks cant win!
