Another Beate Weekend Sketch

I know many of you ask how I have time to make so many things each day. Well I only have one daughter, who is 8. She is usually busy playing with her friends outside in the backyard or she even plays well on her own! I work at Chloe's school during the year so starting Tuesday I won't have as much free time. I'm going to try and get in a couple hours in the afternoons if I can. Just not this week with all the volunteer stuff that needs to be attended to. Even Saturday I have stuff going on....LOL
So with that said, I want to get as much crafting in as I can now!
I wanted to make another card with GinaK's Make A Wish set that came yesterday! It stamps so nicely!! If you haven't been to her site you should go check it out HERE.
I used Beate's weekend sketch challenge again. Thanks for the email Beate with the tip on the corner punch! I really appreciate the help! I didn't have any ribbon to match so I used White Organdy Ribbon and coloured it with my Pumpkin Marker. It only took a couple minutes to dry. I think it turned out okay that way.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Make a Wish
Cardstock: Old Olive, Pumpkin, Very Vanilla and Basic Grey Mellow DP
Inks: Timber Brown Stazon, Choc Chip and WC Pencils
Accessories: Coluzzle, Corner Rounder Punch, Scallop Punch(for the corner), Lg. Oval Punch, Hodge Podge Hardware, Choc Ribbon and White Organdy(coloured with Pumpkin Marker)
The next card uses the Pick A Petal set. When we could first order it, I HAD to have it. Problem was I never knew what to do with the darn thing. I think this set has only seen ink once...

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Pick A Petal and Be Happy
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, WW and Soft Sky Prints Paper
Inks: Black Stazon, Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Accessories: Scallop Punch, 1 3/8"Punch, Double Stitched Ribbon in Blue Bayou and Pomegranate, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, White Gel Pen and Dimensionals

I love the colors, the scallops and your colored ribbon on the first one. Beautiful card!
I love the second one as well. I am with you having a hard time with the Petal set. But it doesn't show on your card. It's gorgeous!
