Birthday 1 of 3

There are currently two birthday party invitations hanging on our refrigerators addressed to Amelia.  The catch is that the birthday party on the 28th is for a set of twins.  This is the first time Amelia will be attending a party as a friend of each sister.  Not going to lie, makes preparing for the party and bit interesting.  Do you get each girl the same thing, but just slightly different in looks perhaps?  Or, do you get them each totally separate/not even similar gifts?  I think we have decided on similar gifts, and more posting about that will come later.  
Right now, the card for sister #1.

I got this cute birthday cake digistamp for Blackberry Jelly.  I used my Bic Permanent Markers to color it, and a white roller ball pen to add the "extra" markings.  It is slightly difficult to see, but I added some pink Stickles in the middle of the lower heart.  I used a good ol' fashion round, circle punch with a piece from my scrap stash to make the background circle.  I also used my Tag Marker punch from Stampin' Up  to create the tag that I put a Happy Birthday rub-on on.  Again, this card is made using scraps.  I feel so accomplished when I can use all scraps!
I am using the card for these to challenges:
