Two for Tuesday

A couple of different cards from me this evening. The first one is a LOTV image I haven't used for a while and it's another of Bev's fab sketches at the Lili of the Valley challenge. Crafty Cardmakers are celebrating their first Birthday so want a Birthday card for their challenge. The papers are Dovecraft with an odd strip of spotted paper punched with an MS border punch. I wanted to make this card suitable for male or female so added Dovecraft punched stars with faux stitching and buttons.

I seem to have used this Anya stamp several times lately as she suits Summer cards. I have often used citrus colours for Summer but decided to go with pink for a change. The stripey paper reminds me of deckchairs. The glitter chipboard images are K&Co and flowers are Prima with punched leaves and pearls.
