forgot to share...

a couple of cards I made for The Crafters Cafe open house the end of December.

I did a lot of the photography at night, so the colors are a bit off, which is why I'll be showing 2 images of each card.

First I made this Birthday card for my daughter's Boyfriend's birthday (Jan. 7)

 The colors are a bit more accurate in the bottom picture.
The card base is a pre-made one by DCWV, in an indigo shade.  The brownish-burgundy and the blue floral brownish-burgundy were both scraps. I have no idea what company they are. It is colored with my STAMPIN' UP markers. The brads are from ADDICTEDTORUBBERSTAMPING. The digi image is from MO MANNING and the digi sentiment is from JEANNE'S CRAFTS. It is on foam dots raised above the scalloped circle punched with a STAMPIN' UP punch. The border punch/embosser is by Martha Stewart from EK SUCCESS.
