Gettin' Sketchy

I have two creations to share today.  The first is a card I created using Clean and Simple Stamping's sketch (#301) and the color combination at Colour Me Card Challenge which was to use Pistachio Pudding ink with neutrals.  Here is the result . . .

My neutral colors were gold and cork (o.k. - cork is not a color).  I used embossing powder from Stampendous, and some adhesive cork from my Studio Calico kit supplies. 

For my second card, I used the Sketchbook Saturday sketch from Random Acts of Creativity.  I just love this sketch when I saw it because the heart in the sketch made me want to use my heart/paw die from Paper Smooches.

I used some elements in my arsenal . . . flowers from American Crafts, a gold doily from Some Odd Girl and those Blue Frosties from Queen & Company.  They look like lights!  Just love them. 

Hope you find some time to create today.
