Birthday Card Set - a subtle colour palette and a cute tulip

Another birthday card for my set!  To see why and how I am creating these cards you can check this post!!
For this card I started with a blue green card front.  I added a gray strip across the bottom and layered on a layered oval greeting (SU).  I cut a piece of beautiful decorative paper and added it just above the greeting.  I watercoloured the tulip image ( Melonheadz)  in soft coordinating colours, layered it onto a rectangle of gray cardstock and mounted it to my card front using 3D foam tape.  I usually like this image in very bright colours but it works equally well in soft toned down colours.


Two sets of doodle birthday card kits

I have created two sets of doodle card kits as kids prizes for a family event this weekend!!
I downloaded the doodles from the internet, laid them out with birthday greetings in fun fonts on a quarter sheets in Corel Draw and laser printed them on white card stock.  I combined the doodle elements with fiber, punchies for central elements, single layer inserts and have included 8.5" x 8.5" pieces of bond paper along with a folding template for the creation of handmade envelopes which will coordinate with the cards.  I watercoloured mine but they could certainly be coloured with any medium - pencil crayons, markers, chalks, etc.  
A few hours of fun in a bag!!
