I was inspired by Jill's color combination, the depth she added by distressing the edges, the torn edge on the kraft paper, and her sketch.... basically EVERYTHING about her card. ;) Here are my cards:
Using Hero Arts stamps and Bo Bunny patterned paper, I kept the layout the same as Jill's for my first card. The notecard was stamped using Hero Arts "Modern Lines" stamp. I stamped the cake from the "Celebrate All Day" set directly onto the polka dot paper. I then re-stamped it on white cardstock, colored it with Prismacolor pencil crayons, cut it out and adhered it over the first cake. (The candles I just colored directly on the patterned paper so I wouldn't have to do all the fussy cutting). I think the rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory.
For my second card I kept the colors the same but flipped sketch onto it's side. The background was stamps with Hero Arts Cling Dots background stamp. The worm and sentiment are both from the "Birthday Buddies" set by Paper Smooches. Again I used Prismacolor pencil crayons to do my coloring.
