Beate's Inspiration Challenge and SCS Sketch Cards

Happy Wednesday!
I have a lot to show you again today so I'll get right to it ;)
Last night I sat down to try out Beate's Be Inspired Challenge. Now you will have to go HERE to see the inspiration piece. When I first saw it, I thought of this paper from American Crafts. Of course the bees have nothing to do with the inspiration other than they have spots! lol
I added Glossy Accents and clear microbeads to their wings.
I thought that the girls from She's All That reminded me of the silhouette in the inspiration piece.
The next two cards are for todays SCS sketch challenge. You were to make a tall card with an oval. These are cards that will fit in a business size envelope. Lucky for me I have hundreds of them ;)
The lighting isn't good here today. Started off as rain then snow then rain again....ugh!
I used the Live Your Dreams Stamp set and Afternoon DP for this card.

I'm really loving this Jersey Shore DP and knew I wanted to use the rocket from Pun Fun. Figured they went well together! It's hard to tell in the picture but I added Stickles to the rocket.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you have any questions please holler!

I've got some DT stuff to get ready for the new CC Design stamps that are coming out on May 4th. Be sure to check back tomorrow...hopefully I'll have some sneak peeks ;)

Hi Dawn,
Love the cards today. They are just great. Live your Dreams is fast becoming my favorite set. I haven't used it, and didn't like it when it first came out, but now I think it is my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

These are wonderful. I love the little bugs on the top and the red flowers are fantastic. I wasn't going to do the sketch challenge this week....looked too hard for my brain right now, but I really really like what you've created. Joan

Fantastic cards! I love them all, but I think the tall card with the scallops once at the end, then folded in is my favorite! You were on fire today!
Hugs and smiles

All of your cards are great! I especially appreciate how you interpreted the inspiration piece. Genius on that one. The bee card is just darn cute and the silhouette card is perfect for the woman in the picture~
