Personal Challenge:A week of cards #4,5,&6

I didn't get a card posted yesterday,
I'll make it up by posting THREE birthday cards!
Now don't get too excited,
because they are simple & easy sketches.
You should try the too.
I used images that had been stamped from a swap I participated in a few years ago
so I don't know makers and such of these images.

This card is easy although I could have done a little bit of
dry embossing
with my Cuttlebug on the vertical yellow piece to make it more special.
I colored the cupcake (that was stamped in yellow)
with colored pencils

then used my Colorless Blender marker that I got
brown ink on the nib

(I tried to use it as an eraser on a piece of plastic
so I needed to get the brown ink out of the marker tip)
I wrote the HAPPY BIRTHDAY in pencil first then used a fine tip marker over it.

This one literally used scraps of paper and cardstock to make it. I used polka dot paper so it qualifies it for Totally Paper Craft's SPOT challenge.

Again I do not know the maker of the stamp that was stamped in blue ink.

This one took a little more time because of the extra pieces and wanting to coordinate my paper choices. I colored the cupcake (same as first card) with my alcohol markers then used matte accents on the sprinkles, candle and flame, and the cupcake wrapper part. I inked the circle with a darker green, and used a "scrap" of green printed paper (it's the back side of the golden paper). The bottom left triangle is from K&Company Citronella pack while the top orange triangle is from DCWV Fun in the Summer Sun pack.
