Card Design - Finding the Inspiration!

It is hard to be original and creative all the time.  Above are two cards that I made.
How alike but different!  The Stampin' Up catalogue is a wonderful resource with so many layouts!
I love looking at all the accents and storing up little things, for instance, the ribbon trim on the cards above.

Lime Lime Burst Card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle

The background of the card base was stamped using 'Make a Wish' stamp from the stamp set (143662), as too was the birthday greeting. The balloon was punched from the gorgeous Foil Frenzy Speciality Designer Paper using the Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609). I further glitzed it up with some Silver Glimmer Paper (135314) and Sliver Sequin trim. Mini Sequin Trim (144230) is new.
