Two for the girls!

The Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is One for the Girls ... now on Saturday I bought the cute "Uplifting Occasion" stamp from the Papermill Shop, so I just had to have a play yesterday ... and I ended up making two!

My first card is a birthday card for my crafting friend Uma - I coloured the stamp with watercolour pencils, trimmed the bra with the cute new Papermania sparkly trim and a tiny bow from the Papermill Shop (I bought both of these at the same time as the stamp, with this technique in mind LOL!), and mounted on white and lilac glitter card and DCWV "Pocketful of Posies" glitter accented paper. The sentiment is from PB transparent set "Bubbly", the lace is from my friend Cathy, and the flowers are Making Memories (large), WH Smith (medium) and Prima (small).
I also notice that this card falls in nicely with the theme for this week's TGIF Challenge #49 which I almost missed but which is Birthdays ... so I'd like to enter it into that challenge too.

The second card is very similar, but instead of lace I used more Papermania sparkly trim (white) and I edged the DCWV paper with my Multishaper punch. The sentiment is a rub on from my stash. This card is to cheer up my mum, as she is currently in and out of hospital and I hope this card will make her smile!
