Time to share another card (well, 2 cards actually) with you! I know, I'm gone for months then you can't get rid of me, posting every day!!!

Today I've got two cards made using Nitwits Collections goodies, no digi stamps, but some gorgeous digi papers and graphics that I've layered up.

The first was a birthday card for my mum, using a collection called Pinky Swear. I also made a coordinating insert. The sentiment reads...'So Special All Ways...Always.'

I will enter this card into the following challenges:

The second was a birthday card for my Niece, who is mad about owls, made using a collection called Summer's End.

I also made an insert for this one too...

The photos don't give a true representation of the colours, which are so pretty in both collections.

Here's a different view to give you an idea of the 3D effect...

I will enter this card into the following challenges:
I am pleased to say that both cards were well received, and I enjoyed doing something a little bit different :I tend to opt for digi stamps coloured with Promarkers without even thinking about it, but this reminded me how much I used to enjoy this technique for my early cardmaking.

Thanks for looking.

The owls are so cute!! By popping up with pop up dots really give them a 3D effect and makes them "alive". Thanks for playing along with us at Frosted Designs.
