Here is my version:
Stamps: Hedgehog Happiness SU
Paper: K&Co SP, Chocolate Chip & Confetti Cream SU
Misc: Brown Ribbon SU, misc brad, Chocolate Chip Ink SU with blender pens
My other obsession lately has been using browns with everything. Yeah I actually didn't use a Changito stamp on this one - LOL!! It looks a little like a sepia photo, but it's the right color. I distressed the cream with the chocolate chip ink and the SP looks distressed too. I used flower punches from SU with the smaller one in the center with the brad. Simple, but nice! :)

Stamps: Changito Tire Swing by Stampendous, Happy Birthday from a SU set
Paper: Garden Green & Confetti Cream SU, misc background paper & Palm Tree Die Cut
Misc: Twine for rope swing & cover wire for the monkey's tail
Taking some inspiration from my sister's idea of the little girl swinging - http://lastminutecrafter.blogspot.com/2009/07/swinging-on-by.html - I wanted to make the monkey swing when the card is opened. I used some twine and freestyle cut the opening with a Purple Cow cutter. Since the challenge was only Brown, Green & White/Vanilla, the tire had to be brown, but I think it's cute anyway!

Stamps: Changito Kick by Stampendous, Wishes to You by Close to my Heart
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Ruby Red, Pumpkin & DSP Washington Apple from SU
Since this is an inspirational challenge, I have to use another Changito stamp! :) Of course it's for a little boy so it has to be cute! The DSP brought the card to life, but it was the letters that killed me! :) It was tedious work - very carefully cutting out the Happy Birthday & stars then using pop-ups (which you probably can't tell in this picture). But in the end, I think it looks cute!
Here's my version of the sketch, flipped on it's side:
Stamps: Changito Bubbles & Birthday Brackets by Stampendous
Paper: Misc background bubble paper & Bashful Blue SU
Misc: Brocade Blue ink SU, Blue ribbon & a clear page pebble on the large bubble
I think I'm in love with all the Changito stamps by Stampendous!! I saw them at a local stamp/scrapbook store about a month ago. I loved the samples they had on display so I had to buy some! Then I found out that Michael's sells them...ohhhh 50% coupons... :) So I'm on my way to a collection of them! This bubbles stamp is one of my favorites...especially with the Blowing Birthday Wishes Your Way stamp (goes perfectly so I had to have that too)!! Hope you fall in love too!
