GIFT (A CAS Birthday Card) and a Thanks Card with Feathers

I read a challenge with GIFT as the is at Addicted to CAS challenge and I cant resist to not making a card :) I was having much time at weekend and I made this one...

First I colored the Gift and fussy cut. 
Second I cut the paper with my paper ruler for cutting...I dont have DIE cut with Postage shape also I used this for the Plan B :)

I colored the white paper with distress ink and gave much blue on the bottom part. 

I just learn how to coloring with shadow also dont judge me please....for the white are at the top of the gift after I fussy cut it I sponged a bit blue on there part. It looks like a one layer card right but it is not :)

The sentiment I stamped with blue ink and I can called JOB IS DONE :)

I also made this card today and want to post together with the card above:

First I use embossing folder to make this brown paper. Then I run distress ink in Brown at the top area of the paper after I embossed.

After that I used my score pal to make this white paper scored:

Here is the card I made using that brown embossed paper and white scored paper:

The sentiment is old SU stamp the feathers I got from my lovely friend Billie in USA. Many thanks Billie for those lovely feather. I love to use it and still keep it some :) 
Hope my card can called Clean and Simple :)
