2 more challenges!

For the first time ever, I actually have all of the colors in Kristina Werner's color challenge! So I combined the colors with this sketch by Makeesha Byl of Australia to make birthday cards for my two sisters-in- law and my mother-in-law.
The greatest thing about these cards is the reason that neither of the cards are exactly the same. They are completely made by using scraps out of my newly re-organized scrap pile.

The birthday hats are stamped with Old Olive craft ink and then embossed with clear powder. The old olive paper strip on the left side is embossed using the Sizzix texture boards.
