Twofer - Your choice


Here are my two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #36, where the theme is up to you. 
For both cards I used a mandala stamp fromPapirdersign. I made an appreciation card and a congratulations card for an anniversary.
The background was heat embossed with white and inked with eggshell. The edges were cut with a border die from Pinkfresh studios. A third mandala was stamped and fussy cut and layered with foam. Two wooden birds from my stash and a sentiment.

The mandala was stamped twice, over the edge, heat embossed with gold on black. The sentimetn was stamped on a strip and golden sequins were added.

I love your choice, Pia, and I think your creations deserve the largest WOW font imaginable! They are both just stunning and elegant! The anniversary design with the sweet bird couple looks gorgeous enough for a wedding topper or table centerpiece and your gold and black design is an absolute showstopper! Thank you so much for playing in TCC #36! Take care! Hugs, Darnell

Just gorgeous. Love both them, they are very different but I can't choose a favourite. The gold on black is a perfect choice to make the beautiful mandala pop and those cute birds are so sweet on the lace feel of the half mandala!
