Birthday and Good Luck

A couple of cards to show.

Firstly my brother's birthday card, which I made last week, using a free template from Simply Cards & papercraft magazine.

I used the template to cut out cut out and ink the different parts of the cupcakes and then assembled the pieces onto dark paper, raising the icing up on foam pads. The base card is pale blue and i've used a couple of mats in silver and dark blue.

The greeting is a peel-off.

This next one is a Good Luck card made for my husband to give to a colleague who is leaving work.
What should have been a simple card to make actually took me most of the day due to said husband being at home and constantly interrupting me and generally putting me off.
In the end I am quite pleased with the colouring, done with Promarkers onto an stamped image from Lili of the Valley. It's been cut out, a necessity since I was distracted and marked the card it was stamped onto, then layered up onto gold and red mats cut with Nesties. Half the card is covered with a pale green paper, from my stash, cut with a scalloped edge. The greeting is a peel-off.
