A Twofer - Birthday and Anniversary

Today I'm joining in with the fun Twofer March Card Challenge.   We seem to be having a blizzard a week for March here in MA so I'm ready to bring on the blossoms!!
I used a new PTI stamp set on both of my cards today - Corner Adorner February Stamp Set.  Both of the sentiments are from Think Big Favorites #24 stamp set - also from PTI.
I used the coordinating dies for the set on my Birthday card.
 I just stamped the the big blossom and leaves directly onto a colored panel for my anniversary card.

I'm also linking my birthday card to:

Both cards are so very pretty! I love the design of your pink one - the lovely cluster in the corner, the spacing of the large but stylish sentiment and the lovely matting. Great card Julia and thank you for joining us again at The Paper Players.

Wonderful Twofer, Julia! Your birthday card is clean and elegant, and I love how you gave the flower a totally different look with your tone on tone panel! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Gorgeous, Julia ... they're both so wonderfully CAS! The tone on tone stamping on your anniversary card is deliciously cool and subtle, fabulous with pop of black in the flower centres ... and I love the dimensional corner cluster of leaves and blooms, they're so fresh and spring-like! Thanks so much for your lovely comment ... and for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

These are stunners Julia - I love that they're so different. I felt as thpugh mine were a bit too similar for the challenge. I love the subtlety of the blooms in the second and how the bloom is much bolder in the first!
