Starry Birthdays for CFC49 and PDCC128


I'm here today with two cards, one of which is for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #128 and CAS-ual Fridays #49.
I will admit, I was stumped with the colours at PDCC this week. Bright orange and bright pink together aren't usually my style, LOL! When I made my Tuesday Trigger card, I thought to myself, "That almost fits the PDCC challenge, I can do it!"  I was also a little bit intimidated by the sketch at CAS-ual Fridays. But, I was making a card for my Dad's birthday (my second card today) and I realised that I had an idea for that sketch! Isn't it wonderful what your imagination will come up with while you are working on something else? :-)

Here is my entry to CAS-ual Fridays and The Play Date Cafe.
I borrowed PTI Star Prints from a friend, and I have now decided I need to buy it for myself. I love it! The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #13. Colours are Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink and Pumpkin Pie.

My second card used the same stamp sets, but different layout and different colours. It is for my Dad's birthday, and he's not really a "blingy" type of guy. This one's a bit more "manly".
This card uses the same stamp sets as the previous one. The colours are SU! Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, and Real Red.

My little girl gave them both her stamp of approval. I quite like them, too!

Thanks for dropping by!
