Last post of the year!

I was so busy making cards for Christmas I never got round to posting these birthday cards when I made them in November/December.

For the first one I printed off one of Louise's holiday photos, matted and layered on a spellbinder scallop mat also Martha Stewart garden trellis border punch. Background paper from Crafty Individuals, stamped sentiment and flower.

The second one, stamped images coloured with promarkers matted and layered. Beer glasses are cut out and attached with foam dots.
