A violet birthday and some balloons

Ha, I remember the days my post titles used to be witty, now it's just 'this is what it is' LOL

I think I've 5 x 80th birthday cards to make.  So this is the first!  And what other colour would I do my flowers for someone called Violet ;)

My flowers are an oldie from Simon Says Stamp.  I haven't done this much fussy cutting for ages, but my hands definitely don't be so sore using the little Tim Holtz scissors :)

This one is inspired by this week's featured stamper over at Splitcoast - here's Suzy's original.

My balloons are super old - I think they're originally from Creative Impressions.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and the green/red one popped up on dimensionals.  Blue stars from stash.

Beautiful cards. Love the violet flowers, perfect for a lady named Violet. The hot air balloons are lovely on the second card, great masculine card.
