365 Cards Day 25 & 26

My husband took my son to visit Nana today, so I had a little time to catch up on card challenges. The challenge for 365 Cards Day 25 - Ad Inspired was to make a card based on this ad chosen by Kristie:

I was immediately drawn to the colors and floral pattern, but I love just about anything that has green in it. Here's my card:

I used by Cuttlebug to emboss the cardstock and used a little white paint to emphasize the embossing.

For Day 26, the challenge was to use colors we normally don't. I surveyed my cardstock and paper stash and found a lot of unused gray and yellow from my paper packs, so I made this card--

It reminds me of the circus. I printed "happy birthday" on the inside and will be mailing this one off to my good friend tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
