Summer-ish Challenges

I've been trying to draw inspiration from challenges and have two to share today.  This first one is for TGIF Challenges, and had the element of "summer heat embossing."  Here is the card I created . . .

The stamping of the pineapple was heat embossed, as was the sentiment.  And nothing says summer like a pineapple in sunglasses. 

My second cards took inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch.  Here is the sketch . . .

And here is my card . . .

I do struggle with one layer cards, but I gave it my best shot for this one.  Included some sparkly embossing to make it pop.  

I hope you had some time to create today.
