Happy Birthday W & J!!! SASSC45, CCC70

Today is my older brothers' birthday. They are twins. So I decided to share a birthday card with you today. I actually have 2 cards for you today. So we will start with the birthday card.
I made this card in honor of my big brothers, but also for the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. The challenge this week is to make a 5 X 5 birthday card...something different from all these holiday cards we have been doing. So here is what I came up with.
I used the fox from Sweet 'n Sassy "Birthday Buddies" set. I colored him with markers, and layered him onto some yellow CS. I used a bright blue CS base, and added some PP from basic grey. The used the same bright blue, and yellow to make some "stripes" along the side too. I also added some glitter to the little hat on the fox.My second card today is also using a Sweet 'n Sassy image. I used the sketch from the Fresh Batch Challenge this week. Here is what I came up with.
The penguin is from the Sweet 'n Sassy set "Waddle I do". I colored him with colored pencils, and layered him onto some PP from TAC's holiday paper pack. I ran the red base through the cuttlebug with the snowflake folder. I added some crystal stickles to some of the snowflakes, and also to the ends of the scarf, and penguin's cheeks. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
That is it for today! Thanks for stopping by!
