Two birthday cards for challenges and my stash

I made this card for the Peachy Keen sketch challenge this week.  I wish I could say I choose the stamp first and then made this bright cheerful card to match the sentiment.  But no I started with the stripes and the  monster.   I only have faces from the Peachy Keen line.  (Must make  note to get more )  Since I hadn't tried the funny little faces I got for the Mini Monsters I decided to do this cute little one eyed monster.  So I am cutting away make my cute little guy and somehow I got ink on the belly which was orange.  Well since I had stripes left I thought why not perk him up and make that stripes so I did.  I then went to get a stamp I have that says How many are you?   It is in a darling set of things kids say I got at M's recently.  Well instead I found this stamp that went so perfect.  "If you are feeling blue try painting yourself a different color."  And I thought shazam that is so perfect.  In fact it was so perfect even my husband got it.  
Now on to card #2 for  birthday stripes and stars challenge at Birthday Sundaes.  This is the first time I have done a challenge on this blog.  But I need to have more cards on hand.  I used a Penny Black stamp I recently bought.  The star, circles are all from George.  Used some more of my cute stripes and polka dot paper.  Punched out some stars with MS punch and then glued stars that were cut out around.  I used Bic and Sharpie markers for the coloring.   Happy Birthday ribbon is from M's.
