Birthday Cards

I got the cutest new stamp by Penny Black and I had to ink it up immediately. The only thing was that the rubber was cut too close to parts of the stamp so I had to repair a few things with my Zig marker. I made two different versions of the card using a completely different color scheme and card sketch. I love the brightly colored card. I had so much fun coloring both of them with my Copic markers. I can't say enough about these. They go on so smoothly, cover the image completely, and are awesome for blending and shading (I'm still learning about this part).

Close up of's so much fun to have so much to color:
