Double Birthday

My oldest two grandsons both have birthdays this week. Eleven and ten - and such handsome young men they are too! Since they are brothers and their birthdays are only 2 days apart I try to make the cards look similar. So these are this year's birthday cards. Happy birthday guys!
I made these cards rather quickly and I used similar colors and one Cuttlebug folder. The images are from 2 different stamp sets. One of the problems was that I photographed the cards on different nights and with different cameras. Yikes - not sure which I like better. I think the boys won't notice.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: MFP - Cupcake Birthday; GKD - Sent with Love
Special Paper - Echo Park
Extras - Cuttlebug - ribbon - ribbon slides
Challenges:
MFP - embossing
