2 Challenges, 2 Birthday Cards

I recently joined Paper Craft Planet and couldn't wait to try their October sketch challenge. For a theme, I decided to make a birthday card for our niece who's birthday is during the Thanksgiving holiday. Since I was at it, I decided to try this week's Character Cafe challenge and make a "Happy Belated Birthday" card for her sister, whose birthday I can't remember. I put a lot of love and thought into these, and hope I don't chicken out and not bring them for our Thanksgiving visit! We'll put some cash in there; that always impresses a teenager.
