Birthday Girls

And the girl parties just keep coming. Actually, I think we're done. Tia had a bunch of parties all squished together, so I had a bunch of cards to make all at once.  Genius me, I just made all the cards the same...but different.  I'd love to take the credit for the layout, but that goes to the PTI design team. The layout & some of the card parts (the sentiment pieces & color strips) came with the Color Couture series.

Ok, so these first 2 cards were actually for twins.  I love these girls.  Now, they're twins, so they have their similarities, but they're also very different girls.  Didn't feel the need to reinvent the wheel, so they just got different versions of the same card.  Plus, it was a time crunch, since Tia had another party the very next day.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of that one (not sure what happened there), but it looked a lot like the one below.

This was the last card I made, so by this time I had the hang of what I was doing - what worked & what didn't.  This one is my favorite of them all.  I used a smaller flourish behind the butterfly and I just love how the sentiment piece came out. I made this one all by myself. There wasn't one with these colors (which I love - yes, even the orange!). Yay me!  I think the best part is that Tia helped make all 4 cards. She had input on the colors, flowers and even the bling.  I'm gonna miss my little card making partner when school starts next week!

Wow. What happy, cheery cards! Love the colors, the butterfly lifting from the page, all that stuff. AND that your comments are color-coded. AND that you used and LIKE the orange one! Very fun.
