Let's get into shape. Wedding and Birthday Card

I have created a castle card for this challenge, I watched Enchanted with my girls and it made me want to create something Princessy. Originally I had the idea of the castle for a girls birthday card but as I was creating it turned into a wedding card. My daughters are going to be flowergirls next Saturday for their Uncle Dans wedding so this card is going to be from them. I know they will love it coming from the girls but not quite sure if we can put our names on too. That is OK though because I bought some gorgeous wedding paper today.

My second card is a circus tent I have made for my nephew who will be two on Friday. We will be having a party with him Friday after school because they are staying on the coast for the weekend to attend the wedding. I was only going to use animal stamps on this one but the Magnolia image reminded me of Malachai (birthday boy) with his curly hair and huge chubby cheeks. Here it is ...
I hope you enjoy this challenge, I have caught a shape bug and although challenging and time consuming it brings alot of fun and satisfaction IF it works out. Check out the fabulous creations at
