A Golden Birthday and a Neon Paintbrush

Yippee!  It's the weekend!  and even though it's raining tonight -  it won't dampen my spirits!  

I have two cards to share tonight made for several challenges out there in blog land.

My first card is a little bit of Mixed Media - as I used something new I just purchased - Black Embossing Paste.  I used it with my Aspen Trees stencil and it gives a great result - it's textured and a bit raised so there's a bit of dimension when you look at it.    I used a gold gel pen to draw my frame and a glitter-gold card stock for the die cut 'birthday'
I used this weeks' Cas(e) this Sketch for my card.
 I'm also putting this in Cas-ology cue card Gold and Bloggers Challenge - They Say it's Your Birthday and Addicted to Cas - Code word Glitter!
 and one more -   Seize the Birthday - anything goes!
 For my next card I used a brandy-new die that I got from MFT -  this great little paint brush!  The die has three pieces - the handle, the metal band and the textured brush (see the bristles?) - SO FUN!
This card was made for The Play Date Cafe - Black and White with a Splash of Neon Yellow 
and I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch  

 I used a Lemon Gelato to get the neon color - rubbing it on the brush and also the twine.  The black panel is embossed with a Herringbone Embossing folder and the sentiment is cut with a deckled edge mega rectangle Nestability.
Thanks for stopping by today -   don't forget the WMS Pajama Party coming up on Monday!
