CTD250, DD61 and Moxie Fab Birthday

Happy Monday.  I have two birthday cards today that use the colors from this week's Color Throwdown CTD250--can you tell I really like these colors?  And, making birthday cards?  I will also be entering these cards into the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday as well as the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  And, I will enter just the first card into the polka dot challenge at CAS-ual Fridays CFC109.

My inspiration for this second card was from this card by Laurie Willison.

On a more somber note, I thought that the colors for this week's Dynamic Duos would work well for a sympathy card.  I stamped Harvest Berries in Fresh Snow on Kraft paper, then over stamped in Pretty in Pink just a little offset.  I love this look.  The top panel is raised, and the back edge has the smaller Harvest Berries image stamped in craft.
