A few Birthday Cards

Since I am so far behind in posting I thought I would share a few birthday cards I have made lately.
All the cards have been made following sketches each week on the Cricut message board 
link to this weeks challenge.  If you have a Cricut we would love for you join in the fun.  I can not tell how doing this challenge over the last 4 years how much my card making improved.
The first one, the papers were all printed using my Imagine and the Lori's Garden cartridge.  The dragonfly is a sticker I have had for sometime in my stash.
 Next is one with a newer technique that I tried.  I stmped the wine glass imagine on 3 pieces of paper in descending size then matted them with black paper.
I wanted to give it a vintage type look so I Google vintage paper and found this one.
Pennants seem to be pretty popular to use on card right now, so I strung these pennants cut from Art Philosophy on some twine.  I also printed the papers on this one, last week Sassy Designs had a sale on their digital paper packs.  They were just 24 cents each, although I do NOT need more papers I could not pass up this bargain.   It is nice to have these papers ready to print in whatever size you need, plus they are easier to store. :/.
One last one for right now.  Quite some time ago I bought some Washi tape (just had to have it) and rarely used it, so I used it to make the background of this card.  I added some flowers I made and a stick pin behind them.  Not sure what this card will be used for so will add a sentiment at that time.

Well that is it for now, hope to be back in a couple of weeks and share some more cards I have made.  We will be leaving on vacation this weekend so not sure I will get a chance to post before then.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful 4th of July with family and friends.
