Mom`s bithday card... and Freshly Made Sketches challenge

I have loved this stamp set for a long time and have to admit that I bought it as it was retiring... big mistake!!  I really love the images in this set, they are very whimsical and fun to use.  I made this card for my Mom, for her birthday yesterday.  Also, I am entering it in the Freshly Made Sketches #3 challenge this week.... my first challenge!!  Although my card may be a bit busier than what the challenge team had in mind, I am very happy with the results.  Here is the link:  wish me luck!

Pierre`s Birthday card and Pals Paper Arts challenge... a little late

Well, better late than never... I have never made a card for a challenge and although it was too late when I saw this design, I had to try anyway.  I tend to have a difficult time making cards for the men in my life and some time I need inspiration.  My brother-in-law, Pierre, celebrated his birthday last week and as he loves to play cards I wanted to use this designer series paper... so I put the challenge to the test and this is the card that I came up with. 
Thanks for looking and enjoy your week.
