SBS 24 Challenge #25 Birthday -general

Well - I recently created two birthday cards for my parents - a March and an April Birthday.

Dad's card could truly be used as a general birthday card- the colors are pretty neutral and the embellishments aren't over the top.

Mom's card is a little more pastel in colors, making it pretty "girly", but I think the image of the party mouse could translate to anyone.

I'm pretty proud of this one.  I used lace, velvet ribbon, glitter (on the pink confetti flowers) AND rhinestones, two styles of flowers and two patterned papers - quite a lot there, but it doesn't give the impression of too much going on!
