Birthday Cards

I didn't send many birthday cards last year & those I did were usually store bought, I'm hoping to rectify that this year....


This one is a bit too busy I think....


My favourite of the two....

Recipe: Stamps - Papertrey Ink 'Rosie Posie'; Papertrey Ink 'Birthday Bash' / Tools - Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie Dies; Martha Stewart Border Punch / Designer Paper - Echo Park 'Yours Truly'

Happy Friday & enjoy your weekend everyone :) xxx

Hi Steph
I think they're both lovely and striking - the one you think is too busy doesn't look it to me. It looks well balanced - so there!
Love

Steph, Im afraid I'm going to have to remove you from my blog list.... You're costing me way too much money. In fact you will be receiving my invoice for every PTI order I ever made because its all your fault!!!

I don't think the first one is too busy at all--the colors are so perfectly balanced. I really love those beautiful roses and leaves. But I think the second one is my favorite--so elegant!
