Sketch Challenges

Hello everyone~
I have two cards to show you today using two sketch challenges that were posted this week. The both sketches are so wonderful and I will definitely use them again in the future!

This card was used the sketch from Mojo Monday (MOJO111). I used the newly released set, HSH Holiday Additions from There She Goes and colored the cornucopia image with Copics. The designer papers are from the retired SU designer papers. The piercing details were made with my sewing machine....I was going to do zig-zag stitches but I messed up during sewing :p
The flower embellishment and brown pearls were added to complete the card.

The next card was used the sketch from SCS Sketch Challenge (SC253). I created the card using Multi Step Gift from Kitchen Sink Stamps. The set is included the words stamps so that you can mix and make different greetings & sentiments! Since the big panel was used for the sketch, I dry embossed the scalloped circle with Netabilities and sponged the inside with baja breeze ink to make the gift box stand out. The triangle pieces were made with CB Vintage die and cut the shape in half diagonally.

These are the steps I did for each image:
(gift box) 1st - Memento lady bug (1 x stamp off), 2nd - lady bug, 3rd - Memento rhubarb stalks, 4th - SU bravo burgundy
(bow) 1st - Memento bamboo leaves (1 x stamp off) , 2nd - bamboo leaves, 3rd - Memento cottage ivy, 4th - SU handsome hunter
