Sketch Challenge Cards

I'm posting early today.
ONE more sleep! Yesterday Chloe got tired of waiting for me, so she went and dug out the suitcases....lol! Well guess what, this morning they are still empty! haha! So I thought I'd post my sketch challenge cards that I did yesterday and then get at it...ya right....
This first card I made for Jen's sketch on her blog HERE.
I had a small piece of this American Crafts DP laying on the table and thought I'd use it up. GinaK's Make A Wish stamp set went with it pretty well! I covered a chipboard star in Certainly Celery Craft and then used my White Gel pen to add some dots. I think the rest is pretty straight forward.
Stamp Set: Make A Wish
Cardstock: Real Red, Certainly Celery, WW, American Crafts DP(orange is back of pattern)
Inks: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Celery(craft)
Accessories: Chipboard Star, White Gel Pen, Word Window Punch, Heidi Swapp Jewels, Dimesionals, 2 way glue pen and glitter
Lauren's sketch can be found on her blog HERE. You can't tell by my picture but I used Shimmery White Cardstock. It's much prettier IRL. The DP is by SEI and the other side is even more gorgeous with large EMBOSSED butterflies. For this small piece of DP though, I didn't think it would show up as well. I'll use it again on a card real soon so you can see ;)

Stamp Set: Priceless
Cardstock: Blush Blossom, Choc Chip, Shimmery White, SEI dp
Inks: Blush Blossom, Choc Chip
Accessories: 2", 1 3/8"Circle Punches, Dimensionals, Choc Satin Ribbon, Photo Corner Punch, Heidi Swapp Jewels
Thanks for stopping by today!
We leave tomorrow for some fun in the sun! Florida...here we come!!
I don't think we will be taking our laptop but my sister or friend will post some cards for me on my blog.
I'll catch up on all your blogs when I return!!
