Birthday Cards- Honey and Chocolate

I have entered these 2 cards in the Color My Heart: Color Dare #47. The challenge is to use the Honey and you may also use neutrals.  So I have chosen chocolate and colonial white as the neutral.
Please visit the Color Dare at this blog:

 Card made using Close to My Heart (CTMH) Colonial White, Chocolate and Honey card stock.  Ink colors are Honey and Chocolate.
1 3/4 inches wide stips, stamped with image from Later Sk8r  (C1545) in honey and chocolate.

Card 2 **********************

Swirled background made with Honey and Chocolate CTMH re-inkers swirled in shaving cream.  Paper is pressed into this and then you scrap off the shaving cream to get the neat design.  Each piece is different.

Dinosaur and saying from the Roar set (D1505).  Words stamped in chocolate and dinosaur in Honey. Edges roughed up with a scissors.
