Three Sketch Challenges

This is going to be a long read as I'm posting 3 challenge cards today. First up is the challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge #42 which is a sketch. Sorry, I wasn't able to copy the sketch, but if you click the link above, you'll find it there. I used all Bo Bunny Jazmyne dp for this, and an image from the SU! set Ever After.
Here is the fun sketch from The Sweet Stop SSS95......
And here is the card I made for that sketch. I made more of the vellum punched flowers using a MS hydrangea punch and added some liquid pearls to the centers. For this one I used SU! Afternoon Tea DP. Those little doo-dads on the bottom are starburst punches with a dot of liquid pearls in the centers. The sentiment was done with a G Studio stamp, and matted on a piece of Soft Sky cardstock.
And here is the card I created. The image is from Sweet'nSassy stamps called Patriotic Cocoa. I think this image is just perfect for making OWH cards for soldiers! I colored the image with Copics and used some basic red, white, and blue card stock, adding a few tiny star brads and embossing the background, using a Cuttlebug star embossing folder.
If you're still with me after this long post I appreciate it! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Sunday!
