Birthday Cards

I was sooo behind on my birthday cards. So yesterday afternoon I took the time to get caught up (for now anyway Ü). I usually make all the cards different, but I just didn't have time to do that and after designing this first one, I liked it well enough to make lots like it. I made 18 of them with different colors and ribbons. Here are a couple the cards I made. I used my birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder that my secret sister sent me (this is going to come in soooo handy!).
Then I brushed the top with white ink to make the image "pop". I used my white signo gel pen (the best I have ever found and I got this from SU!) to make the white dots on the scallop punched oval and for doodling around the white stamped image. I used my watercolor crayons to color the flower image~spritzed a couple times with water~then stamped on the oval that was cut from my Coluzzle oval template. On the caribbean card I just punched the holes for the ribbon. On the plum colored card I added silver eyelets. I used eyelets on all the cards that I had matching colors for.
