Double Joy

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It was back to work for me today so I am now trying to play catch up with my blogging.  After checking my stock of christmas cards tonight I am going to be a busy girl the next few weeks. Every year I have a little panic that I am not going to get everything done but it all gets done in the end.  If not, I can always buy a few cards lol.

My card share for today was another order for my sister - birthday cards for twin boys.

I decided to go for something very generic as I was not sure whether the twin boys like sport, gaming etc.  The only thing I did know is that one of the twins normally wears blue and the other twin wears any colour other than blue.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Papermania.  I stamped it onto white card and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I highlighted some of the letters and the balloons and left the rest of the wording white.  After going around the edges with distress ink I mounted onto blue coredinations.  The papers are also from Papermania.  Some punched corners, ribbon and card candi were my embellishments.  

Here is the second card done in a different colour.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading all  your comments and appreciate your visits.

Two fab cards with a great layout and good use of what I think is a difficult stamp to use - mine has yet to see ink!
Thanks for sharing with us at Penny Black & More this month.
