A couple challenge cards

Hi everyone!  I am nursing a horrible sore throat, so I just had to sit down and make cards, right?  Any excuse -lol!  I have a couple challenge cards to share today.

This card is for Gina K's release party challenge #2. A sketch challenge, my favorite kind!!  The boy and girl image is from the set, The Journey and the sentiment is from Fine Furnishings Additions. I colored the image with copic markers. 

AND see that fun ribbon? I got it from an Etsy store!  It was actually the wrapping ribbon from my purchase! Love it when I can reuse packaging!!  The pattern paper is from Webster's Pages, Restoration and the rose is from Prima's Fairytale Rose Coral collection.
 Next is a card for this week's Fall to Layout (FTL115). I used Verve's Winter Mittens and Holiday Phrases. I LOVE this sketch cause I got to use more of my snowflake sequins (from the Blizzard Mix)! I pieced the mittens, added silver stickles on the cuff. and put silver pearls in the center of my snowflakes!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!!
