A couple challenge cards!

Good morning! 
Today I was feeling full of Mojo and decided to tackle a couple challenges. The first one I knew I wanted to try was Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge! Only problem is, I left the vertical panel off, boo! I just completely brain-farted it! It's all good though cause my version didn't have any room, anyway, lol! But I still drew inspiration from this layout so I wanted to give credit where it's due:)
I used one of my new PI girls from MFT for this challenge. This one is Lil Pumpkin, isn't she cute? I colored her and the pumpkin in with Copics and then paper-pieced her dress. The papers are from a paper pack from the Michaels brand, "Recollections". I really love the colors and patterns in this stack and think I'll hoard the rest for next year, ha!

The next card I created today was for two challenges (go me!, lol!): Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #89 and the Gina K Color Challenge!
I really love black cards and don't do them often so I was determined to make this work! I stamped the flowers from Hugs and Prayers in Versamark and then clear embossed them. The rest is self explanatory. The bird and sentiment are from the same lovely set! I stamped the bird and then cut it out and mounted it on the card with dimensionals. To finish this card off, I distressed the edges, love that look:)

Well, that's all I have today, thanks so much for stopping by!
See you tomorrow!

Oh, I love both cards! The first one is just too sweet. I, also, love that paper and may have to head to Michael's before too long. The images are great and I like that you embossed the flowers in the "background" of the second card. Very nice!
