Lots of Challenge cards to share -Part 2

Part 2 of 2!! This week marked the 200th sketch challenge on SCS! WOWzers, who knew there were over 200 ways to sketch a card -LOL? I really like this sketch, I mean REALLY like it! Here are 2 cards I made yesterday using this sketch.
This first one is a double challenge. It uses the sketch and is for this week's Double Dog Dare challenge. This week Sleepyinseattle (Joanne) challenged us to make a blue Christmas card -bonus for using non-Christmas papers. Well, I used the Bashful Blue DSP, so... ding, ding!

The stamp set I used is Verve's Winter Wonder. I embossed the snowflakes and sentiment with silver EP. The cuttlebug'd top part has stickles all over it for the extra shine. The ribbon says Let It Snow -it's hard to read in the picture. The silver cardstock is retired from Creative Memories.
This next one was just for fun! I wanted to use my JustRite Stampers kits again and I was thinking and thinking of a word that has 3 letters that I could build a card around. Then it came to me -BOY! I used JustRite Stampers DIY Monogram stamper kit Curlz Font. I embossed it in Saphire EP and punched it into a square. I used a color combo of Blue Bayou and Soft Sky. The baby pins were a find at the Dollar Tree! I belong to a large mother's group and with the constant rotation of pregnancies, I will have no problem finding a use for this card!
