Happy Birthday in Red and Blue

Hi all today I have two cards to show you that I have made but before that I would like to share some news with you. 
I have been so very lucky and have won 2 challenges the first was Totally Tilda and the second was Creative Craft Challenge, I have been so happy that my cards were chosen, thank you ladies.

These are my two cards
The first card is in Blue, I have used one of my Morehead Stamp sets, I have only used this once before and that was along time ago.  I coloured her with Copics, I used Momento black Tuxedo ink for stamping both the image and the dragonflies.  I used a little TH Vintage Photo ink for lightly distressing around the image.  The paper is from a Joanna Sheen paper pad, I have added flowers, ribbon, gems, tags and sentiment.

My second card is in Red, I have used my Elusive Images Flower Stamp set, another set that i have had for so long but haven't used for a while, I stamped two sizes of blooms with Versamark Dazzle then embossed with Judikins Metallic Bronze powder, I cut all the flowers out and snipped into the petals so that I could mould them this way and that.  The bp is from Bearly Mine Extreme Vol 1, I used a scalloped circle Nestie for the red spot paper, I used a Nellie Snellen flower die on white linen card for the flower to be mounted on, I used pearls for the centre of the flower.  I added white ribbon, butterflies, gems and sentiment. 

The challenges that I would like to enter are as follows:

Well that's it from me today but I will be around to see you all later, hugs to all.
