Another Birthday & Commission

 This first card is for my train buddy, Claire who has a birthday today. She makes a lot of cupcakes for various engagements, weddings, baby showers & birthdays so I thought this LOTV stamp very apt. Paper was free Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee. Butterfly die, Memory Box.

This card was a commission I made for Claire for her mum's birthday last month. I used Prima Pixie Glen paper. TH Die cut bookplate. Memory Box Butterflies. Papermania XCut fancy frame dies, a white blossom, a pinked circle die cut using Xcut dies. The Chiffon was kindly donated by my forum friend Chris & I made a flower with a crystal for the centre.
The butterflies are embossed with Papermania Secret Garden folder (my absolute favourite)

I thought it quite fitting to show both birthday cards together.

The first is very cute and the second so pretty. (Both are quite pretty, actually!) It's lovely to have commissions, isn't it. I trust all is well over there.

lovely Paula. I do like the second one. Your background paper is gorgeous and you made a very pretty flower.

Beautiful cards, Paula. I especially love the second one - I think the butterflies did it for me and the beautiful frame. :o)

Glad the organza came in handy.
