Two Birthday Cards for Sketch Challenges

Over at Mojo Monday they have this sketch challenge that looked interesting to me.  I still have some 6x6 patterned papers left in my Simon Says Stamp kit, so I thought maybe I could work with that.  Here is what I came up with:

I also used the birthday greeting in the Simon Says Stamp set "Cupcake Party", Spellbinders Classic Ovals, and Memento ink in Lady Bug. I think it kind of worked out, don't you?  And lookie- I got three patterned papers into one card! lol

Freshly Made Sketches has this sketch challenge for the week.  Again, I used the patterned paper from the Simon Says Stamp kit, Bazzill cardstock, a cream pearl cardstock, the same birthday greeting (the line of dots is from the same stamp set) and Memento ink in Teal Zeal.  Here it is:

Not too awful bad, I think.  I kind of wish the scrap I had of the patterned paper had been sized so I could turn the pattern the other way, but it's fine how it is.

Thanks for looking, and see you tomorrow!
