Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #31 and Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #55

I'm really excited that I had time to do both of these challenges last night.

I loved Taylor's sketch (TECC#31), so making a card came easy to me. I pulled out some old BoBunny papers from my scrap file. I used Ruby Red and Old Olive papers and the old Mixed Greetings stamp set from Stampin' Up, along with an old clip from their hodgepodge hardware. I'm not sure where the ribbon came from, but it was perfect!

Beate's sketch (WSC55) was a bit more of a challenge, but I like it. Again, scrap papers from my file, I think they were also old BoBunny papers. I used Buckaroo Blue cardstock and With Gratitude stamp set from Stampin' Up. The leaf was stamped using Color Box chalk pads first, then layered True Thyme ink on top for depth. I also used my spritzer with caramel and banana markers on the leaf. The smile sentiment came from Wordsworth. I love pulling buttons out of my button jar, and these 3 coordinated well with the colors.

I got word today that my new stuff from Stampin' Up has come in, so I can't wait to get going on my Christmas cards and other things soon. Off to hang out with the girls, have a great weekend!
