Two Cards

I've been super busy at work lately, but I have managed to make a few cards lately, but haven't had much time to post them, so this will be short and sweet.

Card One - Birthday Card for my Aunt's 50th (again) Birthday

I used an awesome silver shimmer card base with Altenew Vintage Flowers, Mama Elephant Happy Everything stamp and Happy die, Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Ovals, and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear 6mm and 4mm sequins.  I finished everything off with a quick coat of my clear Wink of Stella for a little more shimmer.  I just love the layered stamping of the Altenew flowers set!

Card Two - For my husband's colleague, from him and several others.  They work at Wofford College, Go Terriers! (their colors are black and gold)

On the outside I used some gold striped paper on a black card base, with Simon Says Stamp Stylish Simon and You Are Pawesome, heat embossed on vellum.  Love that bow tie!  The inside is Mama Elephant Three Amigos, another set I just adore.  I can't get enough of these guys and their fun signs!

I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Clean and Simple.
