50th and Friends Birthday

*******************
Two the same but different !

This first one is a commission from a friend who loves easel cards. She has card making stuff herself but still asks me to make her special cards.  This is for her DIL.
I have offered many times to show her how easy it is to do easels - one day I will succeed :)


I had to use my new Floral Ovals dies - aren't they lovely.








The butterflies were cut from a leftover piece of BP.  I Versamarked them and used clear embossing powder to give them a porcelain look.
Flowers from WOC.







I don't usually make two cards the same but I so enjoyed making the above that I made a similar one for my friend's birthday.





Seam binding ribbon double bow on this one and another flower from WOC.

Thank you so much for entering our current theme 'words only' over on the CraftyMess challenge blog.
Such pretty cards. If I am honest, as the first card has a number in the sentiment then i don't think it fits in with the theme, the second card however does ;-) I love the colours and the diecuts. The buggerflies set the card off well.
I hope you will be visiting us again and entering out future challenges.
Hugs Lisa cxxx
