Birthday card and bag

I made the card and the gift bag for a friends birthday. I used TBBM cart to make the bag, used my gypsy to enlarge the bag and took the handles off the page so they would not be cut and added ribbon for handles. I added self adhesive feathers around the rim of the bag. I used matching paper to make the card adding a few buttons to the circles (it is hard to see the buttons in the photo), I used my cuttlebug and c/b circle's folder for the blue strip and sanded it to bring out the white core in the cardstock. I used a paper crimper for the burnt orange strip and used an MS punch on the top and bottom edge and inked with Timber brown stazon ink. Added matching ribbon from bag for bow. Happy Birthday is a rub-on.
Coffee cup is one of the eco-friendly reusable cups from Walmart. I also made chocolate dipped strawberries. (not pictured)

Simple Sympathy card

Here is a simple sympathy card I made last Friday for a new friend who lost her husband last month. I hope she finds peace and knows her Circle sisters will be there for her.
I used the French Manor cart on this card. The layered bird was cut using a beige glitter cardstock. I used Glossy accents on his wing and a black brad for his eye. The sentiment is a stamp I had and used Stazon on Timber brown ink. I used gold embossing freehand around the Flourish and tied a pink and brown ribbon around card. I add 3 little pink rhinestones on side.
