Birthdays in January

Every New Year brings lots of birthdays to celebrate, mine included.  I think that I have 7 family and friends celebrating their birthdays this month.  :)  One of my New Year's resolutions was to make cards and send them out.  Below are a couple of birthday themed cards that I have created.  Some of my first card creations for 2014.

You will see that the colour schemes are the same (Very Vanilla card stock, Bermuda Bay card stock, Crisp Cantaloupe card stock).  There are also some differences, the top card has not been textured embossed and the bottom card has.  The top card has an extra set of card stock strips and the bottom card does not.  I guess you could say that the bottom has the "Step it Up" technique, using the same layout but stepping it up a notch (for example embossing).
