I had to make more birthday cards! (will it ever end??)



This one is for my sister-in-law, who's birthday was back in July but we are only got together yesterday to celebrate hers, mine and my brothers' birthdays. The card base is Not Quite Navy and the DP is Crate Paper; the orange is from my scrap stash. The cupcake and the sentiment are from Michael's $1.50 bin. I added stickles to the cupcake to make it look yummy!



This card is for my brother, but his birthday isn't until Sept. The card base is Going Gray, then I matted it with Really Rust. I stamped the wall with Really Rust and then stamped the grafitti in black over top of it. I used Greaser Edwin, not because he looks like my brother (he doesn't!) but because I wanted to use these together, and I hadn't inked any of them up yet! SHAME on me!!! I dirtied up his face and t-shirt a bit. I coloured him with my koh-i-noor pencils and gamsol. The black brads are from the dollar store.
