Quick little challenge card

This is a birthday card I made for one of "my boys."   He will be 10 in April!  He is my middle grandchild so now over half my grandchildren will be in double digits!  Yikes they make me old!  lol

At Christmas time, I made sketch books for my sister-in-law and my niece, as well as one for me.  We thought we could use them to challenge each other.  Well, Barb, my sil, challenged Tauna and I on Friday night.  We had until tomorrow morning to complete or cards.  Barb chose this sketch which is from Mojo Monday.  I had my dd's four boys over the weekend so rushed thru this card this evening to make sure I was not out of the challenge!  lol  I had talked to the other two ladies and they had already completed their creations.  So here is mine!
I am not sure why it shows a white steak under his hat band and around his face as it is not there in person.  lol  This photo also is a little lighter than the actual card.  I thank each of you for stopping by and I pray God has a special blessing for each of you.

Wedding Card

My friend in Montana needed a wedding card for her good friend's daughter.  She said her colors are  shades of pink and mauve and would like lots of roses.   I used the darling wedding stamp from Lily of the Valley.  Also dug out my embossing folders from Sizzix, which have not been used in ages.  Added a little trim from a MS punch and inked everything.  Of course, I had to add a little bling so brought out the old BLITZ and smeared over all the flowers then added a little Stickles for the finishing touch.  I chose the "swing" card style for no particular reason other than I made one before and liked the outcome.  I sure hope Chyral likes the outcome of this one!
Thanks so much for stopping by.

hugs and God bless!
