I needed two birthday cards this week; one for my middle daughter, Kayla, and one for a good friend, and fellow crafter, Nancy. I also needed to get my Everything Wendy Vecchi challenge done, which needed to have at least one of her stamps used, three circles, and two hearts. Also using it for this weeks challenge over at Simon Says stamp and Show where we had to show them some texture. I tried out one of my new Sizzix Flip-Its dies here and Archival and Distress inks for the stamping of several of Miss Wendy's stamps. I made the flower from felt and the leaves are fun foam layered on cardstock. I heated the foam and then stamped into it while how after die-cutting the leaves from the foam. Toned down the vivid green with inks. The first picture is the inside of the card and the second one is the front. I hope both of the girls like them. Big celebrations this year for my girls, Savanna turned 21 in March, Kayla is turning 25 on Sunday, and Angela will be 30 in August.Wow, she'll be caught up to me very soon. LOL
