MFW- Birthday sketch challenge

To stamp or not to stamp. That is the question. Well, that's the challenge, anyway, that goes along with this sketch for the Moxie Fab World's Birthday sketch challenge:

To make a card using stamps only, or make a card that doesn't use any stamps. Me? I love a good challenge, so I did both! Here's what I came up with:

Here's the no stamp card:

and the inside

A little card stock, some patterned paper, and stickers. Woo Hoo!

Here's my stamping only card:

the inside

Sorry for the wonky picture of the inside. When I flipped it over, it just kept falling flat. Grrrrr! Anyway, I stamped 3 beer mugs, colored and fussy cut. The white panel was stamped with a diamond background stamp. I didn't ink it up good since I wanted a grungy look to it. Stamped Happy Birthday, and adhered the panel and mugs with foam squares. The inside was stamped in Versa Mark and embossed in white.

That's all I have for now. Have a great day!
