Bumper Cards & Birthday RAK Cards

The first 3 cards I received from Sherry of New Jersey as bumper cards this month. They are all really cute. On the first one she used a white brad for the golf ball. I really like this one. She used 2 new A Muse stamps, an open zinnia and a closed zinnia and stamped one on top of the other. The border is probably the Fiskars "threading water" border punch. Simple yet very nice.
This one is my favorite of the three cards. She used another new A Muse stamp, its a cherry blossom branch and a tiny bird. What I like about this card is that she stamped on a piece of clear acetate and then mounted it on a piece of white cardstock. The pink strip was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the green piece has a scalloped edge. The card base is a light aqua.
This next card I made for another birthday RAK for someone that lives in southern California. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the aqua piece. I like the softness of it and very springy.
I made this post-it note holder some time ago and hadn't given to anyone yet. So I decided to dress it up a little by adding some prima flowers and then the ribbon on the coils. So this will go with the birthday card as part of the RAK.
I made up this card thinking that I would use it as my April bumper card to send out. We are suppose to use A Muse or Saltbox stamps. Well, the chick stamp is from Elyzbells, however, the sentiment stamp is an A Muse stamp. So I may just go ahead and use it unless I come up with something else. After I got it together I thought it needed something else so I added the yellow brads on the four corners. I think it turned out alright - simple and springy!
I used Copics to color all the images.

I know, it's fun. We're going to do a Birthday RAK with the card swap group.
