Those are lovely Maria, I especially like the gold square happy birthday! How have you done that? Stamped on? Though it looks embossed into the square?

well its weird the way it looks Kt, but the square is actually a riased up chipbaord frame with gold acrylic paint on it, and underneath is a square of green paper with a HB peel off on it but on the pic it looks the other way round!!!

see, Im an illusionist!

I did reply to this but then it threw me off and my posting. Gggrrrr - good
job is wasn't a long one.
Like the top one best Maria but the second one would be excellent for a
male birthday.

See - you say you can't make cards and then you go and prove
yourself wrong Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I don't know why you don't like cardmaking, Maria - you seem to have the gift for it. These are lovely!

Whereas I agree with Steph that the 18 one would be great for a boy, there's nothing wrong with giving it to a girl - I would appreciate it, because I like stylish cards.

Probably appreciate it more if I could be 18 again!

Whoops - sorry Maria - I just associate those colours with males. For a female
I think it needs something feminine - just MHO

Well, I was a girl and I like it, how about a small gem instead of a flower if you want to girly it up a bit. Where the bit under the long strip ends and on top of the long strip, what on earth does that mean? I know what I mean.

great cards maria and nice change to see some from you . must agree with steph though the 18 one is a bit manly ,i think it needs some pretty coloured gems around the scalloped circle and it will be good for a girl.

Gems or brads would be nice if it's for a female Maria. And you still
make better cards than you give yourself credit for.

Great cards, my fave is the second one, it would be good for a boy but the blue is lovely. If it was me I would add gems at every ten minutes from 12 round the 18 within the scallop, if you understand what I mean and I would add the same gems to the far right at the to and the bottom of the blue band

Both lovely cards Maria. If you add something to the 18 card we will need to see the finished result!

Well thanks for the precise instructions Ruth, that has improved it no end. am still wondering whether it needs a flower in betwwn the scallop and the end of the band? I put one there but couldnt decide so have taken it off again.

That looks good, Maria.

If you did put a flower on, best not to put it along the same plane as the 18 motif, as it would look a bit mannered if you know what I mean (that's a fine one, coming from Miss Symmetrical). Probably why you weren't sure whe you tried it. It would need to be offset in some way - maybe a small flower at the bottom right-hand corner of the black (or is it dark blue?) background papers. Wouldn't matter if the petals stuck out over the right-hand edge of the card or onto the "denim" mount.

I think the gems look great Mr Green but I wouldn't add anything else.
