Use bright colours - 52 cards week 2

Bright colours from a photo prompt is the challenge for week 2 - use some of the colours shown, or all six.  I managed three for the birthday card and two for the Christmas card!

The Christmas card has a mat of Bazzill Swiss dot in Phoenix, a die cut swirl (Memory Box) and border (Dienamics).  The snowflakes are punched (Martha Stewart) and I cut a strip of white to top the ribbon border.  A few gold pearls are scattered here and there :-)

The birthday card uses  a multi coloured background paper (Stampin' Up?) and I wrapped a ribbon around it.  The flower stem is die-cut (Memory Box) and the sentiment is done with SU punches.  Red pearls to finish this one!  The photo doesn't really show that there is a lime green in the background paper, which goes with the lime green tag much better in reality than it appears to here!
