Two for Four

Happy weekend everyone,
I've got two cards to show you today for four challenges. Don't you love winter, nothing to do but stamp.
My first card is for the Friday Mashup and Try stampin' on Tuesday.

The mashup is a birthday theme and brads. I need a birthday card this week for my daugther who just happens to love pink and dark chocolate. This card has her name all over it.

And the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday is perfect.  I want to say thank you to the Tuesday team for picking my bike card last week.Here is my creation

 The card is chocolate Chip, Regal rose and Whisper White.I used a piece of Whisper White satin ribbon some large Chocolate Chip brads. The stamp sets are Tiny wishes and Crazy for cupcakes. The scallop circle is cut from a scrap of DSP all from Stampin' Up. The scallop circle die is from Spellbinder and the embossing folder is from Cuddlebug. I really like how it came out.

Next is a card for Fab Friday and Stampin' Royalty.

These two challenges go together really well too. I had fun making this card. Making flowers is a fave of mine. Here's my card.

I layered two Spellbinders scallops together. Cherry Cobber behind Pink Piroutte. The Stamp sets are from Stampin' Up. Just Believe and Petite Pairs which are stamped in Crumb Cake. I punched the flowers using a retired Stampin' up punch and put a glitter brad in the center. The DSP is from the Comfort Cafe" and Fan Fair collections. A small scrap of Crumb Cake DSP makes the ribbon.I think I'll just keep this for myself.
I hope you like both my cards Thank you for stopping by. Please come back often.
