One Image, Three Cards

Hello! Yesterday was Shirley's 2 Girls Digi Day on SNR Card Universe. We were all given this free digi to work with and then met on the forum to chat and show everyone what we had created. If you haven't every participated in these Digi Days, you should check them out sometime, they are tons of fun. The next scheduled S2G one is on March 14th, I'll post a  reminder a little closer to the date. As soon as I saw this, I thought of first birthdays, but the more I thought about it, I thought that if you changed the colors, it could commemorate the first of anything: first date, first anniversary, first place. If you wanted to recognize a first place sports win, you could make the card with sports team colors. It could also be a general card to anyone that is #1 in your life. Since my first thought was birthdays and I have friends with little boys nearing their first birthdays I made cards for them. I made both cards with the same color combo, but each was colored different and uses a different layout. 
I love seeing people make cards with the same image and getting different looks. It helps me be able to look at my own stamps in different ways so that I get the most use out of them. After quitting my other job a few months ago, my stamp budget took a hit so I have been enjoying this exercise in creativity! I decided to make another one using my favorite colors this time. I love this summer mat stack that I got from DCWV, it was full of yellows, oranges and reds. 
Top 2 cards: Image from Shirley's 2 girls, paper is Making Memories, card stock is DCWV, punch from EK Success, and orange stickles.

Card 3- Image from Shirley's 2 Girls, paper and card stock from DCWV, colored with Copics and flower and brad from my stash.
