Birthday Cards

My birthday is coming up and I have received several wonderful cards.  I will hold onto them a bit longer before I post them here.  I am a member of the Birthday Club at Club Posh.  Each month you need to send a card to the members that are celebrating their birthday.  In return, you get a card from each member during your birthday.  How awesome is that?  I have sent out cards to the April birthdays.  I'm pretty sure I'm safe to post it here, they should have them by now.  I went with a few items out of my usual comfort zone with this card, plus several tried & true methods.  I used my slice to cut butterflues out of the card opening and then lined my card with Mariposa paper.  I'm trying to use more patterned papers.  I'm really liking the look.
Stamps: Hero Arts-Butterfly(stamped in white), Studio G-Butterfly, InkaDinkaDo-Flower, border & birthday wishes
Inks: Distress Inks in Tea Dye & Vintage Photo, Adirondack-Stream, StazOn Opaque-Cotton White
Papers: DCDW Mariposa, Cream cardstock, Acetate                                                                       
Accessories: Slice Seasons Cartridge, SU! Scallop border Punch, Inkssentials Tool wiht foam pads, Crystal Stickles, Cream & Brown Flat Backed Crystals.

My son, Kane, needed a card for a Sweet Sixteen card.  He wanted it to be girly & pink.  This card is about as pink as can be.  He mad a bunch of the design choices and I think he did pretty darn good!

Papers: Bazzil pink, Lighr pink cardstock
Inks: Onyx Black Versafine, Momento-Rhubarb Stalk
Accessories: Copic Markers, SU! scalloped border & corner punch, Crystal Stickles, May Arts sheer ribbon

Here is a close up of the foam tape mounted full mouse.
