Even though I picked this fortnight's colours, when it came time to make my cards I really struggled, so therefore I have two creations as I couldn't decide which one I preferred! Here is my first:

I kept this one very CAS using some Stampers Select White for my base and stamping a small butterfly image from Butterfly Dreams in various shades of pink along the bottom. I then stamped my sentiment from Inside & Out: Birthday in Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink. (I have only just found this ink and it stamps perfectly and very crisply!!). I then tied some pink ribbon underneath the sentiment and added some Soft Pink rhinestones above this. Finally I rounded the corners.

On the inside, I used one of the smallest butterflies and again stamped this in varying pink shades. The sentiment also from Inside & Out: Birthday is stamped again in Galaxy Gold ink.

My next card uses gold as the main focal colour:

I used Pink Pirouette as my base and then added a layer of Stampers Select White. On my main white layer I stamped the small butterfly image from Butterfly Dreams in Galaxy Gold and embossed, adding some pink rhinestones between each. 

 My sentiment from an old Saleabration Set - Yummy, was stamped in Galaxy Gold and embossed. This was then matted on more Pink Pirouette card, some pink ribbon tied around the centre and the sentiment layer added to the card.

The inside uses just the flourish from the Yummy set stamped in Galaxy Gold ink. I left the inside blank as I wasn't sure yet whether this card will be a thank you card or a birthday card.
