Birthdays, Birthdays, Birthdays

Today I would like to share a couple of birthday cards with you, last week both my daughter's celebrated their birthdays. There's 3 years between them but their birthdays are 3 days apart. Needless to say it was a busy week with Fathers day Sunday last week then Bex birthday last Wednesday and Emma's on Saturday, then yesterday (Sunday) was Emma's partner Sonny's birthday. We had dinner out twice last week which I must say was lovely as we don't do that very often.
On both cards I have used the Mother of Pearl technique which is now one of my favourite techniques.
The first card is the one I made for Bex it is a complete case (except for the bird) of a card Dawn Griffiths made which I fell in love with.

Here is a close up of the mother of pearl technique on the card
