Happy Birthday Blessings

Here are two different birthday cards using the same stamp set with different colors.  This is the first time I've using Anya Celebrates by The Greeting Farm.  She's such a large stamp, that there wasn't much room left on the card front.  I actually had to put the sentiment on the inside.  I added a stamped background using the sun in the Sunshine Emma stamp set to fill the card. 

The suns are stamped with Memento Dew Drop  in Cantaloupe and Lady Bug.  I added "Xmas Red" Stickles to the barrette and to the bow on the gift.  I added stitch marks to the brown layer with a white gel pen.

I really liked how this card turned out so I created another birthday card using more teals and oranges.

The suns on this next card are stamped with Memento Dew Drop in Tangelo and Dandelion.
Since this Anya was more centered on the white card stock layer, I felt like something was missing in the lower right corner.  To fill the void, I added some orange washi tape and added a "clown fish" orange button with a small yellow bow.

On this card, I added "Waterfall" Stickles to the barrette and bow.

Once again, I added the sentiment from Anya Celebrates to the inside of the card.

If you received this card in the mail, would it make your birthday special?
