2 Cards ... The same ... But Different

Hi there ...

I got to meet up with my GF's for lunch today ... It's been awhile and it was so good to catch up 
It's still warm here with a little welcome rain thrown in ... We've had a lovely summer this year

August brings more birthdays and anniversaries when cards need to be made - a couple of which are for men ... So these two cards are in essence the same ... but different
Both use wine labels from my blog friend Jacqueline ... her work is so inspiring and I bought these labels but never got around to using them until now - This first card is for a friend

I've used Pink Petticoat Ombre digital papers for both cards ... This one Soft Sage and I used distress stains on the label

I stamped and gold embossed black cardstock before cutting the 'birthday' die from PTI
and as an embellishment I cut slices from a wine cork ... embossed that too

This next card is for one of my brothers ... I used the Irish linen from the Ombre collection on this card

... again virtually the same process as the first card

I love the effect from the cork ... I think if I had used red embossing powder it would resemble a seal ... maybe I'll try that next time

It just occurred to me that I have included something to do with wine on my brother's last 3 cards ... oops! I hope he doesn't take it the wrong way - 
He retires from the Royal Navy shortly - I think he's done over 40years and I know he's looking forward to a new life

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ... Thanks so much for your visit

Till soon
