FMS450 Birthdays

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday...praying for all those in the hurricanes' paths!  Like we need more things to worry about, right?!  Well, no worries here, just two birthday cards using the Freshly Made Sketches sketch:


The first one uses some printed paper from my stash (thanks, Teri!) and some diecut flowers to match:

I used a favorite My Favorite Things stitched flower die, cutting flowers in So Saffron, Poppy Parade and Soft Sky, and since there are flowers in a garden, I am entering this at the Inspire.Create challenge this week as well:

The sentiment is from Many Mates, heat embossed in white on Basic Gray and diecut with a Stitched So Sweetly die; it's all mounted on a Pool Party card base!

The second one uses the same sketch, and I chose gold pumpkins for a fall birthday card for Seize The Birthday's challenge:

This idea looked better in my head than it did on paper, but you know how it don't want to toss it after spending so much time on it, LOL!

It's so hard to see, but the W+9 pumpkins are gold embossed and watercolored with Cajun Craze and Terracotta Tile inks:

I used Papertrey's A Wreath for All Seaons to create a fall birthday sentiment, stamped in Cajun Craze and Old Olive, diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die and embellished with Gilded Gems:

The printed paper is from Recollection's Thankful Heart pad; it features some pretty gold embossed designs as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love those bright pretty flowers that pick up the colors from the patterned paper! The gold embossed pumpkins are so perfect for a Fall birthday! It may not have ended up like you envisioned, but it turned out great anyway! Have a great weekend!
