Make It Monday: Birthdays

After a long hiatus from paper crafting I am back at the creating. I hosted my first card making party last Tuesday and I am hoping to make it a regular event. Someone requested birthday cards, which was very helpful. So many friends had birthdays this weekend.
 
For a few of the cards I used retired colours, but they could easily have been done with Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. The first two were designs I found on Pinterest.
