2 cards today

This first card was made for a cute little 1 year old's birthday, and was inspired by this card by Kittie in the CAS gallery on Splitcoast this week.  Mine is a more complicated version using brads instead of stamps, but it was so much fun to make, so 'thank you' Kittie for sharing your gorgeous creation that I could CASE.  By the way, the cloud background is also a free download from the wonderful Bird's blog
This one uses some lovely free background paper from here.  There are lots of gorgeous free backgrounds to download on Summer Driggs' site, so please take a look and help yourself.  I love freebie backgrounds, especially when they co-ordinate so perfectly with stamps I have, as this one does with the Pocket Silhouettes set from Stampin' Up.
Thanks for looking.  Be sure to visit again soon as I'm going to list a pile of links to free backgrounds that I've found or been directed to on various other blogs.
