2 for the price of 1!

Hiya! As the title suggests, I've got 2 cards to show today, not ideal but I made both of these over the weekend then forgot to blog them and the challenges end today! Oops!
Here's the first one for the new challenge Seize the Birthday! I'm still on a mission to use neglected stash and I think I'm doing pretty well! This pad is new but the stamps & dies I've had for yonks and until now, haven't seen the light of day!

Seize the Birthday - this sketch (female week) -->
Top Tip Tuesday - Fur or feathers
Die-ing for a Challenge - Celebration
Allsorts - Dies & punches

And here is the second. These double sided sticky florishy things I've had for ages too, and I'm not really sure why I haven't used them! They're meant for flocking, glitter or foil so no excuse really! And I have an alphabet set too - madness! ;-) I took the sketch pretty literally as I thought it was perfect for this flourish! Thanks for stopping in, I hope you like them!

CAS(E) this Sketch - this sketch -->
Dynamic Duos - these colours -->
Addicted to CAS - Embossing (behind the front panel, it doesn't show up too well)

I love your use of a bird cage - and the background paper with the floral border is perfect for it. So glad to see you at Seize the Birthday!
