Popping in today to share with you two birthday cards that I made for December birthdays. The first one is for my sis, Lucretia, and the second one is for my friend, Peggi.
For the above card I used Mama Elephant poinsettia images and colored them with copics. The birthday sentiment is from PI. The scalloped background panel was die cut using a die from Mama Elephant. Gems to finish the card.
Next up is the birthday card for Peggi...
For this card, I used poinsettia images from Altenew. The same birthday sentiment from PTI. The scalloped oval die is from Paper Sweeties. I have mixed feelings about this card since I had a smudge of gold on the side of the card. I thought...really?! So, I thought ok, what would Maria do? Uh huh, Maria always adds on, lol! So, I tried to make it look like it was intended to have an artsy look to it. I think I like it the more I stare at it. What do you think?
Ok, that's all for today. I'm not sure if I'll be posting anymore before Thanksgiving, so I wish for you all a very blessed Thanksgiving with your families and friends! Thanks so much for visiting here today! It's appreciated! Take care!

It's artsy & beautiful, Maria! I also adore the first card--so beautifully colored! Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Beautiful cards and a great rescue job there to make a unique and oh so pretty card!ReplyDelete
Poinsettias are wonderful for birthday cards as well as Christmas cards too! Wonderful coloring and embossing on both. I wish you and yours a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving too :)ReplyDelete
I love the colors you used on your sister's card. They are lovely together. I think the extra gold just added more interest and color to Peggi's card. I think she will love it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too, Maria. Enjoy the day.ReplyDelete
Both are beautiful. So refreshing to see poinsettias for a birthday card.ReplyDelete
