A couple of birthday cards

Our church's secretary, Pam, sent me an email yesterday, asking if I would make five cards for the residents of the Tabor Home who are celebrating birthdays this month.

So, last night, I sat down at my table and decided that my Iconic Images stamp set would work perfectly.

So, I made this card (in conjunction with the Authentique Paper September Colour Challenge):

I used Authentique patterned paper, Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white), stamps (Iconic Images, Communique Sentiments) and die (Mat Stack #5).

And then, I made this card...

I used K&Company patterned paper, Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white), stamps (Iconic Images, Communique Sentiments) and die (Mat Stack #4). The little pearls are SU!

And then I made two more like the latter. For the one gentleman celebrating his birthday, I made a masculine card using some Cosmo Cricket and my Leaf Prints stamps, but the picture I took of it didn't turn out.

Thanks for looking!

both cards are beautiful. the pattern paper you used is to die for. My favorite card is the first. The color combination is so eyecatching. I love how the color of the pitcher blends beautifully with the background paper.

How kind of you to make those cards. They are both lovely. They remind me that I forgot to open that set! But, I really should try to find it.
