Ruby, Rust, and Chocolate!

Here is a quartet of cards I made today (be sure to click the photo to get a better view). There was a challenge to use one main image set, a background set, a word set, and one colour scheme and make 4 cards. I added just one other set for one of the cards, but hey, they're mine, so I figured I was allowed :D. They all measure 4.25 square. I don't really have much to say about them, I'm really happy with how 3/4 of them turned out and I love that they all match.
The top two cards I had already planned out before hand. The one in the top left was something that I had wanted to try based on another card I had seen. The one on the left is based on a sketch I jotted down yesterday. I changed it a bit, since the small size just couldn't fit all the details of the sketch. The bottom left one has some "home-made" striped paper. I took a bunch of my scraps and pieced them to make my own designer paper, but it's hard to see that in the photo. The bottom right one, I took a stab at making my own designer paper again. I stamped the "birthday" stamp in several rows in the 3 colours. It looks really cool and wasn't that hard, or time consuming (I didn't worry too much about straightness since I was covering most of it). I think I will definitely do that again with some of the other words in the Happy Everything set.
