Birthday & Thank You cards

My nephew's birthday is coming up soon so I made a card for him today.

I started with Tim Holtz's jalopy stamp...


I stamped it on a piece of grunge board and fussy cut it.

I stamped Happy Birthday on a diecut piece of card stock and put on a pop dot.
Distressed the edges of my papers and added a bit of walnut stain distress ink.
Added a piece of burlap and set it all on a blank card base. 

Easy Peasy!

My Thank You card was made for the 
Shabby Tea Room - Shabby Patterns challenge
  
The inspiration photo...


We had to use the colors in the photo, add flower and damask.

My card.....


I used a piece of Core'dinations paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder, 
then sanded it to bring out the embossing.

Added a piece of ribbon, 
a Recollections flower that I sprayed with 
Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist,
and 
a diecut that I stamped with 
Heartfelt Thanks
in pink.

A close up.....


The sentiment is pretty light in the pictures but, 
thankfully, 
it is easier to read up close and personal!
