The Lollipop Ladies #47 - Jelly Babies!

I was inspired by Bron to go check out the challenge at the Lollipop Ladies. Their current challenge has this inspiration photo, & you can add the extra challenge of using ribbon:-


How cute are those little babies all lined up in a row?  :)  I've used the colours - green, yellow, orange, red & purple to create my cards.  I've also thrown in some blue, because the last bag of jellies that we had had blue babies as well!  Here are my cards, made for two adorable babies, who are about to turn two:-


I've used the two yummiest colours (purple & red jelly babies) for the embossed sections of the cards.  I created the cards & panels on my die-cut machine.  The cheeky little jungle animals are digis by Dusin Pike & have been printed on X-Press It paper, coloured with Copic markers (that I borrowed from DD) & then fussy cut & popped up on dimensionals.  I've added some sparkle to the giraffe's hat & blower, & the cupcake frosting & candle flame with a Spica pen.  I've used white glaze pen on the candle, which has given it a great "waxy" look.

Here's each card individually:-
