Sending You Birthday Wishes~ Challenge Card and A Halloween Card

Hi everyone!
I had a card all ready to post yesterday and I got too tired so I am posting double today.

The first one I made for two challenges:
The Ribbon Girl~ use ribbon
Birthday Sundaes~All about the Brads

OK so my card is a shape card using George and Basic Shapes Cartridge and welded on my gypsy.
The balloons are from Simply Charmed cut at 3.5" and I used the shadow feature as well.
I added the PKS faces~ Everyday Character and Simple Sallies.
I colored my own ribbon again using my copics and BV08 and R85.
I know the picture is not the greatest but the card base as well as the sentiment mat and ribbon are all purple and are all the same color.
So the sentiment is actually a dollar bin find that seemed to fit too good with my balloons :)
A little twine on the balloons, 3 purple brads, some white gel pen doodles and a paper clip to hold the sentiment and my card is complete!

So here is my second card.
I picked up this cute pumpkin die at the store the other day on clearance and of course had to give it a try :)

Cute little pumpkins....a very simple card using Cloud 9 Season Paper Stack and Fiskars Halloween Night sentiment.
I added more white gel pen doodles on my pumpkins and popped up the middle one for some dimension.

So thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by tomorrow for another Paper Playtime challenge
 and a new Whimsical Wednesday challenge on Wednesday.

Have a GREAT night :)
