Birthday card and a Christmas card

Hi!! I made these two cards last night, so I thought I would share them with you all.

For my first card, I chose to use Polly Packages...I love this image. I inked it up with Versafine in Onyx Black and embossed it with sparkle detail powder. I coloured it in with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I used my brand new oval nesties on this card too ( THANKS MOM for the early Christmas present!!). I can't remember who made the patterned paper but I thought it was really cute. I also added some Primas (with a silver brad), some Stickles in Star Dust and the "Merry & bright" image (from Stamping Bella) for an added touch.

I made the birthday card for my boyfriend's birthday yesterday using the most masculine stamp I own (I really need to find some "guy" type stamps). I inked up my Momma and Baby Cupcake stamp with Versafine in Onyx Black and embossed it with sparkle detail powder. I used the same PP for my previous card and used my oval nesties again. I also used my Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background on the card and embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with sparkler detail powder.
It's a really cute but simple card (I had a short amount of time to make it in as he was playing his weekly hockey game).

Hope you enjoyed looking at my cards!! Have a great night everyone!! One more thing...since I am almost at 2,000 hits, I will be posting up my FIRST blog candy give-away sometime in the next couple of weeks, so be on the lookout for it!!
