Happy Birthday by Cassonda

Cassonda Tadlock is here today to share 2 fun birthday cards she created. She recently celebrated her birthday and was in such the birthday spirit that she decided to create a card with a birthday theme! Who doesn't need a stash of birthday cards?  Cassonda loves layering all kinds of embellies in a little cluster just for fun. ♥

Cassonda decided to use some older papers from Girls Paperie & Imaginisce and added some fun stickers from SRM. She loves that SRM Stickers are are clear and can be added anywhere. She used the We've Got Your Border  Birthday stickers and We've Got Your Stickers Plus Birthday design. And see that little bit of doily peeking out under the flowers? That's one of SRM's super cute 4" white lace doilies. Cassonda stamped on top of the Punched Pieces scallop tag and heat embossed using raspberry and lemon embossing powder. So cute right? (no they don't smell but she sure wished they did!) She also added a little pull out tag with just a touch of Maraschino Twinery twine to write a sweet message for the recipient of this card. She topped the card off with pearls sprinkled all around.

For her second card Cassonda made a card for a friend who loves red, so she added a big red flower!  The stickers peeking out from under the ribbon are some Sticker Stitches/Valentine and Fancy Sentiments/Birthday.  And of course, she had to add a little more of the white doilies.  I think that there's a bit of a doily addiction going on here! :)

Love the way she finished off the inside of her card using more Fancy Stickers/Birthday.  

Have any birthdays coming up soon?  If you need a card, you've got your inspiration!  Thanks Cassonda for such pretty cards!  They are simply delicious!

By the way, today is MY birthday!  Thanks for the beautiful cards Cassonda!  So sweet of you to remember! :)  As some people get older they dread their birthdays.  Not me!  I love to celebrate for the week of or even the month of my birthday.  If you have any birthday cards using SRM, I'd love to have you post them on our Flickr.
