2 Birthdays



Hello and happy Friday!  I've got 2 cards to share today.  I haven't played along with the Runway Inspired Challenge in ages but I finally managed to join in this week.  I think my inspiration is pretty clear.  ;)  I wanted to let the stripes be the stars of the show so I kept the sentiment simple.








Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Poppy Parade, Smokey Slate, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Halftone Hello) Altenew
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Happy) Mama Elephant, (Stitched Stripes) Lil' Inker Designs
Gems:  Recollections




Card number 2 is for the current RetroSketches challenge. It's a great sketch for using up some patterned paper scraps.  I was inspired by Tracey's card where she let her patterned paper shine. That's it for me today.  I'm off to do the food shopping and then get this house cleaned up!  Hope you all have a lovely weekend!





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Hello Honey) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Party Day 6x6) Crate Paper
Stamps:  (Flags from To The Point) Avery Elle, (Sentiment from You Said It, Sister) Fresh Squeezed Stamps
Inks: (VersaFine) Tsukineko
Thread:  Janlynn
Gems:  Recollections

These are so good! I love how bright and graphic the first one is. The second one has great colours, and a hint of homespun look to it. The stacked banners are perfect!
