Shabby Birthday & Kickstand

Well, this is a twofer- two cards in one post! Let's start with the first- this was a rough one for me, not overly thrilled with it. It's a kickstand card from Creative Inspiration #19 {which I found out is kinda hard to photograph too!} It's using the colors from Color Throwdown #53. The distressing around the DP panel is for Simon Says #13 and Dare you to digi #18. Sorry it's a little washed out, I'll reshoot in the morning with good light! **please note, if you visited this site in the past half hour, you will have seen a different version of this first card. Sorry! I just didn't like it and had to update it a bit!!**

{Materials} DP: making memories, brads: makingmemories, recollections, sentiment: makingmemories, stamp: Cutting Cafe, Gems: recollections, Other: CB swiss dots folder

The second card came out much more to my liking, kinda has a shabby chic thing goin on {I think it's just the flower paper}. It fits for digital tuesday's #17- CAS, and the sketch is The Fresh Batch {SASSC26}. Colors and hearts for Colour Create #24.

{materials} DP: current, ribbon: Offray, stamps: SU!, Cutting Café, ink: Martha Stewart, Other: CB ornamental die
