Sweet 16 - girl and boy versions

It feels good to craft again.  We were gone camping for 5 days and although it was nice and relaxing I always miss my crafting.  I took in some of the challenges that I missed:

The inspiration challenge from Stampin Celebration:

For my card I incorporated the CAS sketch challenge from SCS, the inspiration challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges; the Moxie Fab challenge - Peace; the My Grafico challenge - embossing and Paper Cutz challenge - wheels ( the next card fits these challenges as well).  The paper and peace symbol are from Goodness and Fun (My Grafico), the stamp and cloud dies are from PTI and I embossed the clouds with a cuttlebug folder.  I mounted the car with foam squares.

Both cards are also for the Moxie Fab, Fun and Cute challenge:

Now for a 'boy' version, which fits The Crazy Challenge this week:

The sketch from Eat Sleep Stamp:

The color challenge from Stamping 411:

For my card I again used some paper from My Grafico, these are the Park Avenue set from Lilly Bimble.  I embossed the card base with a PTI embossing plate although it is hard to see. The clouds are also embossed and the smaller one is on foam squares.  Stamps, buttons and die are from PTI.
