Happy 18th Birthday...

here's a couple birthday cards I made for a special someone...he turned 18 yrs old! I thought I'd have to make a card that fitted that event. I wanted it to be special and unique. he loves the color red, so I tried to stick with that to be the main color.I finally got a chance to use my new stamp set...
Simple Friendship by SU.
I fell in love with the butterflies, flowers and swirls!
I used some DP, chocolate chip and pink pirouette cardstock.
I had to use some dazzling diamonds on the butterflies and I used heart bling for the middles of the flowers. I used the happy birthday sentiment from all's another card...I made it into a shaker box!
I used red micro beads from Cute Stuff and I added some chunky clear glitter. I used the 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle punches and the scallop punches from SU. I also used the wow flowers stamp set for the sentiment. I used red bling in the middle. I used real red and close to cocoa cardstock.
and some DP from my stash.
here you can see it up closer.
I used the cupcake mice stamp from Leigh's wishing well.
colored with my copics!

thanks for stopping by today.
sorry for not posting...I was feeling a little under the weather.
I know the winds have been pretty cold.
take care everyone!



Love the butterfly's and the sparkles on the cupcake card. So cute!


Love these cards, especially that butterfly, I love the way it pops out.
For the HK bags, it is the cardboard that you gave me, and then I cover with the printed paper. Thanks for your comments on my blog.


Both cards are so darn cute, Joy!! I love the pretty color. The butterflies are gorgeous on your first card and your shaker card is fabulous. I love those cute images and you did a fabulous job coloring the image!
