Four cards for PTI's anniversary, Day 5

This evening, I have three cards to share that I made for the
 PTI 7th Anniversary, Day 1 Challenge
(which is to use one of the 7 sketches on Nichole's blog and
pair it with one of the 7 colour combos she's posted)
and for the PTI Anniversary Day 5 Challenge,
(which is to make a birthday card and to take a photo me holding the card for an extra entry.)

The first card I made was with this sketch:

And used this colour combo:

Here's my card:

I used some Crate Paper patterned paper for my circle and from it,
I die cut a butterfly using my PTI Beautiful Butterfly dies.
I die cut the banner using Get a Handle on It and stamped my sentiment from Think Big Favourites #12.
I added three PTI buttons and some twine.

Sage took a photo of me with my card in my craft space.

(Got to love my aqua mist Gap sweater, fingernails and walls!)

For my next card I used this sketch:

And this colour combo:

And here's my card:

I used some terracotta tile & vintage cream card stock,
some Pink Paislee patterned paper and my PTI Big Ticket Basics stamps & die.

And here's my photo:

And for my last card, I used this sketch, which I rotated 90˚ to the right.

And this colour combo again:

In my mind, once I rotated the sketch, the sentiment strip made me think of a building, 
so I pulled out my PTI City Scene stamp set to make my card.

I inked my edges with harvest gold and for the corners of the sketch where there
was suppose to be twine, I added a bit of extra inking in summer sunrise.

And here's my photo of me with my card:

Before I go, I have one more card to share for the Day 5 contest.
This one was also made with City Scene, but it was made by my daughter, Sage.

She stamped the Eiffel Tower in versa mark and then I helped her heat emboss it in silver.
She had messed up with the cab, so I suggested she just stamp again on a die cut and cover up 
her mistake -- it worked like a charm!

Oh, and here's Sage holding her card:

Doesn't she look adorable in her hat? Very parisienne!

Thanks for looking!
