Backgrounds and Birthdays

I have a selection of cards to share with you today. The cards are sample cards I made for Hobby Art's shows on Create and Craft last week. I have used two stamp sets for these card. They are Decorative Backgrounds and Birthday Collection.
For my first card I used swirls and decorative circle from the Decorative Backgrounds set to create the flower heads. To start I lightly coloured the edges of a square of white card with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I use stitching and swirls from the same set for the rest of the flower. I stamped the sentiment onto a tag. The sentiment was from the Birthday Collection stamp set.
For my second card I have used the large word stamp as a decoration for a big birthday cake shape. The word stamp is from Birthday Collection stamp set. I cut candle shapes from dark pink card and I used gold Dimension Pearls for the flames. The background is a sparkly stamp from the Decorative Backgrounds stamp set.

For my third card, I started by colouring the card with Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap Distress ink. To decorate the card I used a mixture of Decorative Backgrounds stamps. The sentiment is from Birthday Collection stamp set. I stamped stitching each side of the sentiment. To finish I added a little brown button.

For my forth card I started by stamping the sentiment. I then stamped the swirls from Decorative Backgrounds stamp set on the card blank with Forest Moss Distress ink. I stamped the little flowers with a dark red ink. These are also part of the Decorative Background stamp set.
