Hand stamped background Birthday cards

Hello there!

Are you ready for some more Lawnfawn loveliness? Well I hope so 'cos that's what you're getting!

This week's Lawnscaping challenge was to create your own background. Well, I enjoyed it so much I did it twice! My DS2 has been invited to a birthday party this weekend so I made 2 cards because the party is for twins.

I started by stamping a chevron border to make a continuous pattern then layered the cute banners from the birthday tag set over the top and coloured them in, I also did some inking around the edge of my stamped panel. I used the same method for both cards and just changed up the designs slightly, I hate to do the same card twice so it's a good job the twins are not identical!

It's a shame you can't see the sparkle on the unicorn, I used stickles for her horn and heart and sakura clear glitter pen on her mane and tail. There's no glitter on the yeti, I don't think boys 'do' glitter unless they're spreading all over the living room ;)

I would like to enter my cards for 2 challenges

Make the Day Special a colour challenge (I used orange, blue and grey)
