2 challenges, 1 stamp set and a Happy Birthday!!

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great day! I woke up today with a tummy ache and it doesn't go away! It is bothering me really bad. I am having a very slow day, I was planning on posting this early, but.. now you know why I couldn't. Anyway, enough of me and moving forward to show you a couple of cards I made for a couple of challenges using "Spring Florals" by Gina K. Designs. and also participating in the Color Challenge Blog Hop.

Easter Blessings: For this card I used Creme de Menthe, Lovely Lavender and a bit of Lemon Drop. I stamp the image on White PL CS in Stazon Black, colored it with Prismacolor Pencils, cut out the second image and positioned it on top for a 3D look. I used my oval Nestabilities to cut and emboss and sponge the image.
I added some CB BG and straight stitches. I based my card on the sketch from 2S4U.

Card recipe:
Card Stock: Creme de menthe, Lovely lavender, Lemon Drop.
Stamp: Srping Florals.
Ink: Stazon Black, Memento Sweet Plum.
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pearls, Diamond Stickles.
Accessories: Sewing machine, Cuttlebug, Embossing folder, Daubers, Sticky foam.

Birthday Wishes: For this card I used Creme de Menthe, Innocent Pink and White PL CS. The image was stamped in White PL CS in Stazon Black, colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS. I added some of the flowers and leaves for a 3D look, after that I added some Diamond Glaze. The image was cut, embossed and sponged using Circle Nestabilities.
I based my card on the Mojo Monday Sketch.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Creme de Menthe, Innocent Pink, White.

Stamps: Spring Florals.

Tip, tip: In order to give my image a much real look, I used Glue dots instead of Sticky foam, they work much better!! Hope this tip help you.

And finally, I want to wish my beautiful niece Johanna a Happy Birthday! She is turning 17 today! WOW, I can't believe it. It looks like yesterday when she was born, sadly the same day my uncle passed away. It is amazing how dead also bring life.
I love my niece very much and I miss her a lot!! She is very funny, sweet and the most honest person. Anytime I talk to her, we laugh a lot!! Happy Birthday Johy!! Wishing you the best!
