Four birthday cards for my MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) Group

I am a mentor mom at my church for MOPS which stand for Mothers of Preschoolers.  We meet every other week and our next session starts up this month.  I have volunteered to make birthday cards this year for all the ladies.  I thought it would be fun to make birthday cards for challenges and that way I would have a whole bunch of different cards.  The cards need to be flat so they do not require a lot of postage.  So here are the first four cards I made:
For this card I used Lacey Labels and a MS punch.  I am entering this in Die Cuttin Divas- Sketch Challenge

and Cooking It Up With KatieThis week's ingredients are:Use some Purple,Add a Bow and 
Include a Sentiment.

The next card I used twine, stamp by Penny Black  and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  Added butterflies I punched out of scraps.  
The Paper Variety Use stamp on project.  Paper Variety is celebrating the one year of their blogaversary with a challenge each day.  
This card I am entering in More  Than Favors- Use Gypsy Wanderings for butterfly and Celebrate cut and 
Peachy Keen Stamps Blog  follow the sketch
This card I made with a  piece I had left from a layout.  I loved  the roses.  I added the ribbon and covered the word Love with the Happy Birthday stamp.  Added a few pearls.
