Birthday Thank Yous

I made these cards as birthday thank you notes for a co-worker of mine. He had thrown a surprise party for his wife, and knew that she would want to send out thank you's to the guests - how cool is that!

I stamped the present image in the same color ink as the main card, and then colored them with the coordinating color to bring out the presents. Even though I like how all of these turned out, I particularly like the Ruby Red version here, because it's a color combo I haven't tried before. Plus I really liked how the coloring turned out. I used a blender pen with the Groovy Guava Ink from Stampin' Up for a fun water-coloring effect.

Here is the sentiment inside the card, using the "thank you" from the Short and Sweet set from SU. Once I change the sentiment, it would be great for a regular birthday card as well!
