Daughters are Precious

My two daughters have their birthdays five days apart...and it always brings back memories when they were little.  To save the stress of having two birthday parties, I used to combine the two and have one on the weekend.  I enjoyed having to put together the loot bags and decorations (no dollar stores then) and order or make cake(s) and the matter of who should be invited was another story.  Cos they would have invited the whole school!!

In celebrating their birthdays, I made this card for my 'first born' as she would like to be called! She loves purple, so the card is made up of designer paper/white embossed cardstock, Martha Stewart border punch, Stampin Up bird punch and circle stamp, cut out butterflies and birdcage, purple ribbon and tiny silk flowers and a big brad.

The second card was made for my youngest daughter who loves anything vintage and the shabby chic look. So, this card is made with designer paper in brown with red cardstock and a Prima flower and tiny brown silk flowers. Stampin Up happy birthday wishes, red silk ribbon.  This is an easel card as you can see in the second picture below.
