Birthday and sympathy cards

I have quite a few friends and family who are celebrating birthdays in late December and January.  I designed this card for them.  I used a card base from Studio G, stamps from Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life, versamark ink, Crayola glitter paper, and Die Cuts with a View cardstock.  The patterned paper here is some leftover wrapping paper.  It was too pretty to throw away!

I also used this design to make a condolence card for the families of Newtown, Ct.  I thought the snowflake was appropriate because the lives of those lost were unique, beautiful, pure and fleeting.  I hope that the cards and letters help comfort the families a little.
