Two cards today!

Well aren't these two contrasting cards? I have used SU Season of Joy set and the parcels are from a retired SU set called Birthday Whimsy. The striped paper comes from the very yummy Holiday Harmony DSP paper pack which is in the Spring Mini catalogue. The colours used are Purely Pomegranite, Old Olive, Confettie White, Regal Rose and Always Artichoke.

I have put some glitter on the tree and parcels and used a gold star brad.

For the bird card, again I used Purely Pomegranite in the textured card for the base card, the other colours are Garden Green, So Saffron and Black. All supplies for this card are from Stampin' Up!

I really love the sets used here - True Friend, Always and Wild Rose [for the leaves].

These are great, you are getting a lot of use out of your bird stamp. I'm ashamed to say I haven't put any ink on mine yet.
A couple of questions, how do you get borders around your pictures and how do you get the symbol for the background to go right up in the left corner, I can't get mine to move.

If you are interested I have a blog candy challenge going on on my blog site at the moment.
Take care,
