"Choose Happy" Close to my Heart Birthday Cards

Close to my Heart, Choose Happy Stamp Set

Hello! 
I'm sharing lots of birthday cards today!

I made this set of cards following the same sketch, just using lots of different coloured papers.
If you want to follow the sketch you can head over to Chris' Facebook Page to see it and you can win a lovely prize.  I really wanted to build my birthday card collection up a little....it takes such a workout! Each month I send out lots of cards, so I am always on the look out for birthday card ideas.  And it is always easier to copy the same design a few times to make a few more cards quickly.

I used Copic markers to colour the border around the sentiment to match the colours in the papers.
I only have three of the Close to My Heart markers and I used those three colours in this card below.

I love entering their challenges.  Its a lovely community on that blog : )

I made the top two cards first, then I kept going a few days later and made some more!

I liked these colours...yellow, purple and blue.
The yellow ribbon and green ribbon below are not Close to My Heart Products.  They are from my stash, but everything else is Close to My Heart.

This last green and black card was a different colour combination for me.  But I actually liked how it turned out.
