On Your Special Day / Birthday Cards for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #130

Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #130 is "Birthday or On Your Special Day".  You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme.  Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of 10 euro voucher to In 2 Stamps Tues, August 7, 2012 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., August 5, 2012 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I previously joined a card swap.  This is the 1st card swap wherein I have to create cards for all the participants in the swap.  At first, I was unsure if I can do it but the inspiration just flowed and creating 5 cards for the swap was a breeze.  I enjoyed creating them and would willingly go for another swap given that I have the needed supplies to create multiple cards of the same design. =)

Here are my cards before I mailed them off:
SUPPLIES:  Cardstock: Star Paper Corp.;  Pattern Paper: Daisy D’s; Die Cut: Ling Designs; Thread: DMC.

Here's an additional card for this challenge:
