Colorful Birthday cards

Hi everyone, glad you stopped by.  I have a couple of cards today that have similar colors in them so I thought I would post them together.
The first one has a paisley cut from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and the oval from Plantin Schoolbook.
Both cards were made following a sketch last week on RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board and also a color challenge.
I thought the paisley matched the paisley on the background paper.  After putting all the layers together on the paisley I covered it with Crackle Accents.
For the next one I used a lot so glitter paper.
I embossed and sanded the green paper with the Spots & Dots embossing folder to march the spots on the background paper.   I stamped the happy birthday on white glitter tags I cut out using Calligraphy Collection and added a piece of ribbon.  The star with the tail is cut from the Home Accents cartridge.
I finished the inside using the same paper and stamped a sentiment from a new set of stamps I got from Clear Dollar Stamps. they are having a huge sale.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget the special that is going on a Close to My Heart where if you sign up as a consultant you get the Art Philosophy cartridge for free, so for $99 you get the consultant kit packed with tons of goodies and the Art Philosophy cartridge with 3 matching stamps sets if you have been wanting this cartridge this deal is the way to get it.  Check out my post HERE if you are interested or want to read more about it.
