Using old stash III

I have decided to work my way through a 3 Birds kit that I bought from Crafter's Companion a very long time ago and have never used,  these are two simple cards to celebrate the New Year


This one has been made following the instructions in the kit:


I have to say I quite it!

This is the second one made to my own design:


I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

These are both very nice and I like the ribbon and bows you used here. The glittery look really is appealing. Have a fun day.

What a stunning kit! Your kit card is perfect, Pauline. I love that ribbon treatment on the sediment panel! And go you, making your own design that is every bit as awesome as the kit card!! That's such a great feeling, isn't it?! I think they would also make great masculine birthday cards any time of the year. Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #3!! Hugs, Darnell
