Birthdays in a row..

Hi gals.. How are you doing?
I feel so happy today.. it's just because soon i'll be graduated from my current job. After 3 years and 5 months been there, finally i have courage to move on even though it's a tough decision for me. Thanks to my DH, families and friends who support me through the difficult moments, and encouraging me everydays, you're the angels in my life!!

Now i would like to share some birthday cards created to my sister Rosalia and my best friend Meilani. Meilani's birthday is May 13 and my sister Rosalia is May 15 same with my DH, Widya. But until now i still have no idea how to create a birthday card for my DH, isn't it weird?

Birthday girl

When i chat with Meilani couple days ago, i asked about her favorite color(s)? she said red-blue-yellow. Then i asked her again elegant or fun style? she answered fun!

Then i come up with this card.. I add other colors too such as green to match with her scooter, black in one of her gifts as i love the black and red combo.. and it match with the candle. Hope it's not too much and i hope it's fun enough.. :)

Happy birthday Meilani!! Wish you have wonderful days with tons of fun and happiness and gifts :)

My sister's fave colors are blue-black-white.

I'm so inspired with Sally's card holder and i decided i wanna create a pocket card using my new hydrangea stamp. The stamp is so versatile and i love using it again and again.. Then i put the happy birthday tag inside the pocket.. :)
