Friends with Flair and 2 Sketches

The sketch this week from Unscripted Sketches:

The color challenge from Curtain Call:

For my card I have a mirror image of the sketch and incorporated the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge as well - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 different punches (the border punch for the 'grass' and 2 butterfly punches).  I used some of my older Fancy Pants papers and my new Unity March KOTM.   This is also for the Design Dollies challenge - walk in the park.

Be sure to go to Angela's blog so that you can see all the Friends with Flair participants.

The bonus sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You:

The color challenge form Embellish Magazine:

For my card I used my March Scrap Shotz kit - Glitz yummies, and made another simple and quick card for me - no sewing.  I cut the lips out with my Cricut Indie Art, painted it with Shimmerz and mounted with foam squares.

Wow, I love them both. The first card is fantastic with the combo of those colours. I really like the second one too, it's got that grunge/funk look. Great cards.
