The early birthdays include two of my nephews...and I've got both of those cards done!
I chose bright colors...they are both elementary school ages...and have found a fabulous website with a talented designer who offers her cutting files for free! Its called Birds Cards, and she has a range of wonderful files that cut quite smoothly, go visit!
The diamond lattice background and both the birthday greetings are from her site.
I have a difficult time using ribbon on cards for guys...but I think that the simple use on these cards works...I'll save the ruffles and such for other cards.
I'm linking these two up to the challenge at 3GirlJam ~ anything goes, if you want some ideas on how to use ribbon in creative ways...go check out the design team and the links...so awesome!
