My Birthday cards for Freya and Olivia

Its time for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday 

 and our theme for you this week is 

Use some buttons

We would love you to come over and join us so please head over to the challenge blog to enter your creations and to also pick up the discount code valid until midnight tonight

I needed to make an 18th birthday card for my daughter Freya and one for her best friend Olivia. I have been dying to use the new Twiggy and Toots Digi Download 
and I thought this image was perfect to add a 1 and 8 to in the balloons

The coloured image, cute little digi heart buttons and both gorgeous papers are from the Twiggy and Toots full digi download, its great that you can download the collection straight away and can get crafting immediately but if you are patient and would prefer the collection on CD it'savailable at Polkadoodles Store
The image is called Party Birthday Celebration and is available singly HERE

I have also used the following ingredients

Hot Pink Gingham ribbon
1 and 8 from Quickutz number dies
Happy Birthday Banner die from Poppy Stamps
Pink and white bakers twine
All Occasions alphabet dies

On Olivia's card I used the cute digi circle buttons and blue bakers twine and all of the other ingredients
