2Sketches4You and Mojo79- Happy Birthday and Sympathy

I have two cards for two different challenges to share today. They are totally extremes, the least to say. One is for a Birthday and one is a Sympathy card. Yes, I needed both of them.

I will share my 2Sketches4You card first. I always love Kazan and Laura's sketches, they are always soooo much fun! I made this card for one of my sweet friend's birthday with the cute Making Memories papers that I fell in love with and I sure hope she likes it.

Supplies used to make this card:
Cardstock: Bazill
Patterned paper, label sticker, flower and orange thread: Making Memories
Alpha stickers: Adornit
Button and ribbon from my stash
Punch and decorative scissors: Fiskars
Bling: Darice

My next card was created with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. And this is the second week in a row that I am making a Sympathy card with their sketch. This one is for Michael's Aunt, who just lost her husband. It was so sad, we visited with them in Seattle last Tuesday and he died the next day. Life is very precious, for sure. Mojo Monday's sketches are clean and classy, so it was easy to put it together. For this card I used my March Urban Anthology kit, which was featuring the beautiful Cosmo Cricket line, that I just love.

Supplies used to make this card:
Urban Anthology kit contents
Cuttlebug folders: Textile and Script
Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Two
Stamps: Stampin Up
Additional cardstock: Stampin Up and The Paper Co.

Hope you like my cards and have a fabulous day!

These are both gorgeous Eva!
I love the bright and lively colors of the first (plus I love those MM papers).
And the second is just simple and lovely. I am very sorry you needed this one though.
