2 Sketch Challenge Cards & A Sale!

For this first card, I followed the latest Sketch For You To Try and the only change I made was to flip the sketch on its side.

I had to get both of the clear birthday sets from The Cat's Pajamas because they're so cute, and I finally inked them up today! The penguin with balloon is from the "You Say It's Your Birthday" set and the sentiment is from the "Smells Like Cake" set.

All the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Cupcake pad and the grosgrain ribbon is from Stampin' Up!

For my second card, I used the Little C's Weekly Challenge #12 sketch. The second part of the challenge was to use Anthony & Burt stamps, but since I didn't have any, I decided to not use any stamps at all!

I knew I wanted to do a Halloween card, so I dug out some of this SUPER old Pebbles, Inc. paper and stickers and started playing. The spider, gravestone, and boo! are all stickers that are mounted on foam tape, and the sequins and brads are from Doodlebug. You can see I did some Cuttlebug embossing on the scalloped square and also the purple background.

Speaking of Little C's - Jen has an awesome sale going on for the entire month of October:
