Happy Birthday Twins

A teacher at school asked me to make her two birthday cards for her twin 25 year old girls. I asked her what their favorite colors were and then I created these.
This first card follows the Sweet Sketch #100. The favorite colors are: navy and powder blue, raspberry, lilac, and pale pink. I found all those colors in this paper with a little green too. I used Sweet Treats to cut the cupcake and Accent Essentials for the scallop and circle.
This second card followed the Pink Elephant sketch. Favorite color for this daughter is periwinkle blue. I am submitting this card to the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge.


Have a great Mother's Day weekend. I am going to look for a a new paper cutter this weekend. I need suggestions! What is the best type?


  1. I love the Martha Stewart cutter. It has the best blades. They last longer then most. Your card are goregous. I love the cupcake one. Great colors and DP. thanks for joining our celebration this week.
