Two cards I made last night

I bought myself a few little bits from SU last week and wanted to try them out. So last night i set about making two cards. One was for my lovely friend Francesca who celebrates her 30th today (its OK that the card wont arrive in time- she is currently celebrating the big 3-0 in Sydney having spent the last week doing exciting things like swimming with whale sharks- lucky old thing).

Anyways, I designed this 30 card using: Pink Passion & Green Galore Cardstock, Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Ribbon, Sweet Treat Cup, Cheers To You Stamp Set, Cheer & Wishes Greeting, Cheers To You Wheel, Circle and Star punches, Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, buckle fom the Hodgepodge Hardware kit and then finished off with various glitters and glitter pens. The finished card also has jelly beans filling the sweet treat cup (I was going to put a necklace in it as a gift card but the one I bought was far too big for the cup. So sweets it is with the necklace in the envelope!)

The second card is for an old school friend who is getting married tomorrow. Unfortunately I am unable to attend the ceremony but wanted to send my greetings all the same. For this I used Confetti White Paper over Pixie Pink, the Love You Much stamp set, two large
pink rhinestone brads from the Fire set, greeting from Cheer & Wishes and Platinum Shimmer Paint (with a sponge dauber).
