Birthday Cards for Annette

This is my second posting of the day. For my TAW challenge card, please scroll down.

My blog sweet friend, Annette of My Clever Creations is having a double celebrations this month - her birthday and her 18th anniversary!  Because of this, she is holding a linky party.  I am also linking this to Simon Says Stamps Challenge.

I actually made three cards for her (wink! wink! Annette) Today, I will share with you two birthday cards and the third one will be on a different day.  Here is my first card.

I am using the sketch from Hero Arts to make this card.  Using the kraft as a base card and also I wanted it to be a one-layer card, I used HA Lauderdale Trees which is heat embossed.  The die cut of the flowers and leaf are from HA Floral Die Cut.  This time instead of stamping and cutting them, I decided to use only the die cut them onto the burlaps and velt. The sentiment is from HA It's Your Day which is also heat embossed.

On onto my second card, I wanted to use the same sketch but a different colour, I came up with this.  For this card, I used HA Large Fabric Design on the base card.

Dear Annette, I can't decide which one to give it to you, do you have a preference or shall I give you a surprise?
