A couple sketch challenges

Hi everyone!  I have a couple sketch challenge cards to share today.

First up is my co-Verve Diva, Jen's SFYTT sketch.  This one really called to me and I just HAD to use my new Ippity Stamp set, The Simple Things.  HAVE you seen the new Ippity sets yet? Super duper cute, you can check them all out here.  I stamped the flower stem in Pink Pirouette, it's hard to see in this picture, but the petals on this bloom are BUTTERFLIES!  WHAT?  How cute is that?  My friend, Heather Rolin designed this set and I am so in love!

The paper is Gossamer by Memory Box.  I got into a kick using this paper like crazy about a month ago, and then I LOST my pack.  Yep, couldn't find it to save my life.  Sigh...I swear one brave day I will show you all a picture of my stamping area.  Here are pics when I first remodeled my area, needless to say it DOES NOT look like this now.  LOL!

This next sketch is for the current Go-To Gals Sketch challenge.  This sketch really caught my eye with all the circles.  I wanted to make something simple for a Father's Day card.  The pattern paper is Man of the House collection from Bella Blvd.  I love the fun patterns all done with a masculine feel and colors.  The sentiment is from Verve's Father Figure set.

For a bit of interest, I added a brad and popped up on dimensions 2 of the 8 circles and the sentiment panel.  I really love how this turned out.  This really was quick and easy AND a great way to use up scraps!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
