Winter birthdays

As I was wrapping my presents this year, 
I fell in love with the pattern on one of my wrapping papers..
ferns, pinecones, mistletoe: winter foliage.

I have a few birthdays to make cards for, in January,
and thought this would make the perfect backing for those cards.

First up: Hubby's Aunt's card...
A lovely friend of mine bought me the
 'happy' and 'birthday' as a present.
I matted the paper and embossed a clean line around the edge.
I cut a few fancy corners out with my cuttlebug dies
A couple of punched butterflies and some glossy accents on the berries, finished this card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty sentiments - atg - 16 Jan
Try it on Tuesday - something old, something new, 23 Jan (new word dies)

This next card was made for my sister-in-law. 

Made in the same way as the first, but using a different happy birthday die 
 and a different cuttlebug corner die.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Get creative - atg - 3 Feb

Beautiful cards - it's a great idea to use Christmas paper for other occasions.
