A Merry Sketch and A Man's Get Well

I've got two cards to share today - one from last weeks Color and Doubledog Dare challenges and one from this weeks same challenges (my cards are piling up!)

First, my card for the color challenge over on Split Coast last week which was to use Pink, sage green, and grey and the Doubledog Dare Challenge that you can find here in the forums was to use this sketch that Beverly (beestamper) created.

My stamp is from the Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps . I stamped the image on the green and pink card stock using Versamark Watermark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut out the Mery Christmas part from the pink and adhered it over the green piece with foam dimensionals. I adhered that to two pieces cut using the Labels three Nestabilities.

I used a rub on for the scrolls in the corners and colored my white ribbon with a gray copic to go with the colors in the challenge. The lovely designer paper is Amy Butler by K & Co.

We'd love to have you join in the DDC sketch challenge just put DDC in your keywords when you post your card in your Split Coast gallery.

I'd also like to remind you to check out all of Claire's new stamps over at Waltzingmouse Stamps - you're gonna like what you see - I promise! She tends to sell out fast too - so if you see something you want I'd recommend you load that baby into your cart!!

My second card was made for 3 challenges - this weeks color challenge, to use kraft, white and Mellow Moss, the Doubledog Dare Challenge where Ann Harmon (jdmommy) challenged us to make a male get well card without ribbon or flowers, and I used the sketch for the Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge!

I used the Off Beat Backgrounds set by Waltzingmouse Stamps to make the plaid bg on my card. The cat and sentiment are by the Cat's Pajamas.

OMG Julia! The cat holding the syringe - that's just priceless!!! I love the card - it is very masculine! The Waltzingmouse stamped card is beautiful! So, there is a nestie that fits these images??? I've ordered another of Claire's sets that said "Nestie friendly" (or something) and will need to figure out which nestie to get once the stamps are here! I'm so glad she's doing that! I hate cutting things out by hand.
