WCMD! Not too shabby!

Doncha love it that there is a "holiday" all our own? I told my hubby that today is world card making day and that he had to make a card and well, it didn't go well! LOL! He just sighs and says "Honey, how about you make a card FOR me!" Okay, if you insist:D
I made this first card a couple days ago. I colored this sweet Ketto (Sake) in hopes of getting to use her for the Bellarific Sketch but it turned out that the challenge was a "Fall" card, no sketch at all so she doesn't really work for fall! Oh well, I went with it and made this card with this weeks 2S4U sketch!
The card base is Lavendar Moon by PTI and the dp is from the Basic Gray "Wisteria" collection!

My next card is for this weeks Viva la Verve sketch with a {twist} challenge! Here's the sketch:
The {twist} this week is to go shabby! I love the look and everyonce in a while I can pull it off, but more often I fall short, lol! My card that I made for this challenge turned out pretty cute I think.
The card base is Rustic Cream by PTI (a GREAT shabby color!) and I can't remember who makes the dp, it was a scrap I had laying in a basket for like a year, lol! The stamp set is called "Cupcake Affair" by Verve Stamps! I wanted my card to have soft colors, sewing, sponged edges, and a fun shabby stamp set:) The ribbon was just a perfect addition, so glad I found this is my never-ending basket of balled up ribbon, lol! I colored the stamp with Copics and included the colors for your reference...
Well, hope your WCMD goes by beautifully:) I hope to get to all the fun challenges on Splitcoast tomorrow! See ya then:)

Thanks for your kind comment on my attempt at "shabby chic". Your card is gorgeous. The DP is perfect, the ribbon is delicious and I love the nestie shape you used to frame the cupcake. Wonderfully done.
