Two Birthday Cards (Both are Scene Card)

I have seen this lovely Photo Inspiration from Just Us Girls Challenge and I am fallen in love with the Photo inside this graphic:

I really like the yellow...also as I have no time last night I only made this yellow paper using embossing folder technique, gave the yellow distress ink inside the embossing folder then I run my paper at my Big Shot...looks how yummy is this paper :)

After office hour I run to my crafting table, Chris the DT from JUG gave me inspiration to use again my Paper Smooches old collection in life :)

 This is not my card this is from the DT at Just Us Girls, Chris.

I started to stamped the images like what I want...I like to have a table with vase and flower and also a photoframe and chair and lamp. Then I die cutting the paper and also a yellow paper with MFT stitches Rechtangle. The Sentiment is PTI. I sponged all the edge of my paper with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I colored my Image with copic markers.

  I am sorry with the first photo here you can see more clear the detail of my card:

HSS Inspiration Challenge #239: (I choose the color Red, Yellow and Green on my card, hope it count :))


My second card also a birthday card and it is a card using a sketch from Share Joy Challenge:


I started to made my grass and sponged also the sky, using the Die Cutting Goodies from my lovely friend Barb G, I start then coloring the Elephant and his Balloon with Akashiya SAI watercolor marker, the marker really blended so well, also for cardmaker like me who is not good at coloring with shadow, this marker is NO DOUBT!! It help me much :) see the result what do you say?

I stamped the sentiment on a vellum paper and gave pink embossing powder and heat it.

I used the Design Paper I ever won for my card base and to keep the sentiment stay (Vellum paper is not easy to glueing) I use stapler at each side.

Challenges for my second card are:
