Birthday cards for Hero arts

Everyone has the moment, right? Yes, I LOST my Mojo. "Sigh~" Ever since Mother's day even though I forced myself sit down at my craft table and try to make a card. There is no magic happen and everything is just wrong until I saw my cards got featured.
First one is featured on CARD.
Another one is featured on Embellish Embossing Color Challenge. I love Embellish Magazine, there are awesome challenges and super talented designers. I am so happy and so honored to have my card featured on "What's Hot"!!! Happy! Happy!

I pickup up some leftover and wrap up with this two birthday cards for Hero Arts. I made the first one on Monday and didn't like it. Later, I am inspired by Sally's card Here. Here are my twp cards.
