Wishing You A Happy Birthday


Yesterday, after finally breaking down and going to the Minute Clinic to find out why I still have this horrible cough, (turns out to be allergies and a sinus infection),  I put together two quick birthday cards using two watercolor panels I had created over the past couple of days and were just BEGGING to be used!  
I can't get over how quick, easy & fun creating background panels using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks can be.  If I didn't stop myself, all my cards would have a background like these!  LOL

I also decided to use the same Die'sire die cut (DS-EDG-HAP) for both cards, just simply used a larger white card stock panel for one vs the other.  The balloons on the card above were die cut from the Elizabeth Craft 'Balloons' set (#ECD-726) and Nuvo White Crystal Drops were added to the corners. 

The card below was created very similarly.  But by using a larger white panel I felt it needed a little something so I die cut the Poppystamps 'Petal Ribbon' #1414 from a scrap of the same watercolor panel and positioned across the bottom.  That was the only addition and I think it's perfect!   This card literally took me 5 minutes to put together, once I had the watercolor panel created & dried of coure.

 Challenges to share in today are:
 Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything Birthday  (Option Tie One On)
Inky Chicks Challenge #86 - Use a sentiment instead of an image
{PIN}spirational Challenge #196 - Photo Inspiration (colors)
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Happy Birthday
CropStop August Challenge - ATG using product carried in their store

Well that's all I have to share with you today.  
I hope you have found some ME time in your schedule this week!
Enjoy your weekend!

As always, thanks for stopping by and . . .
