The Same but Different!

I have the birthdays of some of my friends I know through dancing coming up, so I thought I'd get ahead and get some cards made.  It's not easy to find images for 1930's/1940's swing dancing but this young lady doing the Charleston is getting close.  She's only 10 years out - 1920's!  So one stamp three different colours and three slightly different looks.
First up is this gorgeous olive green combo which I'm entering into this weeks challenge at Charisma Cardz where the challenge was monochromatic.  Although all three of these cards could count for this challenge :)

Next up I went bright and bold with this red version which I'm entering into Cupcake Craft Challenge where the challenge this week was red and white. 

Last up is a mustard colour.  Not a colour I'm automatically drawn to but I thought I'd give it a try for this vintage look.
