Happy Birthday

The two cards I'm posting today are very different.
The first one is a gatefold card, I love these, so easy to make and for this one I've used a Martha Stewart punch for the two front side panels. Inside I've also used a Martha Stewart punch, this time a punch anywhere punch which I've used in each corner with and stamped my sentiment in the centre. There is still plenty of room to write a personal message.

Card 2 is a simple A5 card scored and folded in half. The colours used are vibrant and go really well together, quite a cheerful card, just what I needed in the depths of our Australian winter. I used the same sentiment stamp on this card as on card 1.

The colours in card two are not one's I would usually use, so I challenged myself to use them and here's the result. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
Call again soon.

My card is made using products from my stash, some of it I've had for so long I really have no idea where I got it from.

I like slider cards, in fact I like any cards with movement, so I went for a slider card for this challenge.
