Tuesday Birthday Cards


Just a couple of birthday cards for today, both from SCS challenges.  And both were color challenges!  Today's is CC238, which uses Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow and Going Gray--I used both Going Gray and Basic Gray:


I just realized I left off a Sage Shadow panel I wanted to add behind the ribboned panel--oh well!  This also almost uses Fall to Layout #61 from the Clean & Simple blog.....not really C&S, and not exactly true to the sketch, but the layout is wonderful!

I used markers to color my image from Of the Earth; sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I knotted a piece of Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon and ran it through a Filigree brad to make my little embellishment.

Yesterday's SCS Clean & Simple challenge #34 was to use pink, green, blue & white, with brown if you wanted.  I made a really quick card using Nursery Necessities:


My little bird is stamped in Old Olive, Regal Rose and Brocade Blue; the sentiment, from Simon Says Stamp, is stamped in Close to Cocoa.  DP is from a retired Hostess Pack.  Thanks for visiting today and be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown and Diva Coffee Break Challenges!


  1. Sweet cards, LeAnne! I LOVE the layers of ribbons on the first one with that pretty hardware! And the little birdies on the second are adorable!

  2. Aw, cute cards! I love the sweet trio of birds!

  3. Both are great cards LeAnne! I love the ribbons on the first one! I think it is still a CAS card -IMHO.

  4. I absolutely love the ribbon treatment on your first card! The colors are so soft and the layout is great, too! The birds are adorable!

  5. Gorgeous! Love the colours, the little tab sentiment and the ribbon decor!

  6. Hi LeAnne, every time I come to your blog I'm amazed by your cards... I've been MIA for some time, and LOVING your cards! This card is very fresh looking and pretty... TFS! :)

  7. Ack! these are so beautiful. I may CASE that first one. My Mom's birthday is right around the corner and I always want to get her a card that is more special. This one has such a great look.
