Birthday Cards for Practical Scrappers Anniversary Week ~ Use exact same thing on a card..

Good Monday morning everyone!!!  Boy, have I been busy!!!!
This week is Anniversary Week over at Practical Scrappers in celebration of our Second Anniversary and we have some fun and exciting things going on each and every day this week!!! 
Today our Design Team was to make two (2) cards using something exactly the same..  This could be the same sketch, exactly the same paper, it could be anything as long as it was exactly the same...  I chose the Tim Holtz Caged Bird diecut for my cards...  I love the way they both turned out...

Here is a close up of each of my Birthday Cards..



  
These will also qualify for a few challenges out there...
Alphabet Challenge ~ M is for Metal
Anything Goes Challenge ~ Pick of the Bunch (Flowers)
Use it Tuesday ~ Use Two Hoarded Items (Prima Trinket and Prima Paper)
Top Tip Tuesday ~ Make it Girlie


Here is my scrappy list of things I used...
Stampin' Up Cardstock
Stampin' Up Ink
Prima ~ Strawberry Kisses Collection "Daydream"
Ribbon
Trim
Stampin' Up Oval Punch
Tim Holtz Alterations Caged Bird Bigz Die
Prima Vintage Trinkets
Stick Pins

Thanks so much for dropping by!!
I've got something new to show you tomorrow so be sure and check back!! 
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs!!!
