Some birthday cards

Hello again, the sun has been shining here always a good thing. Hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend.
I made these two this weekend.

 This is for my sister in laws partner, not sure what that makes him to me but we love him anyway. I used some Kraft card, some paper I've had for a long time and some gold pearl paper.

I cut the layers and the Happy Birthday with my dies. I used an scrap of very dark blue to back the Happy Birthday as it got a bit lost otherwise. One of those card that kind of makes itself, I can see a few more of these being made as well.

This one is from an Crafters Companion CD, Adorables Summer Collection, now it's been out for a while but I only got my copy a few days ago. I used some pencils I've had forever to add some more shading to it and left it at that. This one is for an uncle who lives close to the sea so I hope he likes it. 

I am entering these two in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations -Monochrome
Lexis Creations - Sentiment as the focus
Crafty Hands Challenge - Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - All at sea
Glitter n Sparkle -no square cards

Thank you for popping by, any comments you can take the time to leave are greatly appreciated.
