Sunday Two-fer!

I have two cards to show you today. First up is the Simple Doodles Challenge - Celebrations. I've been having fun with the new releases, especially these truffle images! Trish gives the DT the images in advance so we have some time to play with them, and I've made a few cards with these yummy images! (You have two weeks to enter your card into the challenge. If you don't have a Simple Doodles image, check out the blog - most images are only $1.00 and some are FREE. As soon as Trish hits 50 followers she'll add another freebie!)

I also wanted to make this card so it could be for a boy/man, as well as for a girl/woman, so I used this American Crafts paper. Also, Our Creative Corner and Christian Paper Crafts had blue and green color challenges this past week, so I used those colors, too. (Better late than never!) I added just a splash of very dark brown. (I think it's Bazzill java.)

I colored the truffle with pencils and OMS and added some buttons and a pearl. The sentiment is Stampin' Up.

My second card is the 365 Cards Sketchy Sunday challenge. The sketch is really awesome, but I just could not get a good idea to leap forth!

This is what I ended up with. It's really not my best effort.

I used Fancy Pants paper and a Fiskars scallop punch. But, honestly, this is not the card that I saw in my mind's eye when I started working. But, some days you just have to move on.

I do love the yummy K&Company flower. I added this sparkly brad that I found in my brad bin. It's very antique looking.

Come back tomorrow for my 365 Cards Monday Challenge.
