Birthdays & Bees

Hi there!  Just popping in before I head off to work to share a couple of cards.  First up is an entry for the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.  I used Crate Paper patterned paper and a Lil' Inker die.  Once I finally decided which papers to use the card came together pretty quickly.  Another card checked off for the 50 card order!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (The Pier 6x6) Crate Paper
Die:  (Birthday block) Lil' Inker Designs
Gems:  Recollections
Glitter:  (Black Wink of Stella) Zig

My second card is for the Paper Players colour challenge.  This one came together pretty quickly as well - one of those ones that actually ends up looking the way I imagined it.  Love when that happens!  The Paper Smooches bumble bee is an NBUS (from their first release I think) but the PS Santa hat and the Papertrey merry have seen a lot of use over the years.  Okay must dash off to work now.  Have a lovely day!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green) Stampin' Up, (Vellum) Strathmore
Stamps:  (Bee from Giddy Bugs, Santa hat from Santa Paws) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Merry) Papertrey Ink
