Vintage birthday cards

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't posted for a while trying to catch up with birthday cards through to December so that I can concentrate on getting started with christmas.  Here are a couple of birthday cards vintage fashion that I really enjoyed making.  The first card I made for my sister in law's birthday and the second was my nephew's birthday which is today.  Both are decorated inside in a similar design to the front. I've listed below items used to make them in case any bloggers like the style.  Hope you like them.
Be back soon with a couple more, and hopefully the promised gnome card for Eileen G..... all for now.  Dee xxx
