Stampin for the Weekend Challenge #24 Celebration

Celebration 40th Birthday and 50th Birthday's
This is the first time I have entred into Stampin for the Weekend Challenge.
Good morning everyone well it's Sunday morning here in New Zealand and I'm just getting over Saturday night, because for us it was one of those weekends. Sports all morning with my boys on the cricket field and that afternoon I had to race home and make a couple of cards that I should have done a week ago and left it to the last minute as you do LOL. We had a double whammy this weekend, my husband had clients, a husband and wife that were turning 50 and had a wonderful 50th birthday party then we had another with my nephew and partner were both turning 40 so we attended both and raced from one side of town to the other, we had to put an appearance into both.
Next weekend we have a 60th to go to, now I'm showing my age we don't get to go to 21st any more I wonder why???
I made two very simple cards I designed some time ago, I think they look nice and very appropriate for the occasions.
Here's my card Recipe
Base: White SU card stock
Design Paper: Nil
Trim card: Mauve, and Apple Green Bazzill
Images: Sweet peas from the wonderful Chris Dark from Sketching Stamper my favourite image of Chris's.
Colour Medium: Water colour pencils
Embellishments: White & Silver Satin Ribbon, Gems from my stash
Sentiment: PC generated font AdineKirnberg-Script and Copper Plate Gothic
Tools: Water Brush, Cuttlebug, Divine Swirls Embossing Folding my favourite, Spellbinders Nestabilities Square, and the Sweet peas were painted with Glass Coat to give a 3D affect
I do hope you like the cards and thanks for looking.

These are stunning cards I bet they love them. I like the embossing it adds such a great bit of texture to the cards.
Thanks for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck.
