Dual Sketches

I had time to play along with 2 challenges while the race was on this afternoon, and here's what I came up with. First up is my card for the Sweet Stop Sketch SSS120. I flipped the sketch to make my card, using the Rhubarb's Sunflower digi image from SNSS. The DP is from BG origins and I matted with SU! chocolate chip on all the panels. The sentiment is from the SNSS Your Friendship. I added Glossy Accents to the flower just for a little interest.
This is for the sketch #81 over at the Stars and Stamps blog. I've had this top note die cut in a box for a long time, so today I pulled it out and embossed it for the sketch challenge. I used a flower from the SNSS Your Friendship stamp set, embossing with Versamark and black ep on a piece of retired DP from SU! I added some black accents with the leaves and sentiment panel and this was done super quick and easy.
I hope you're all enjoying a relaxing weekend!
