MOJO257 Sketch Challenge

My first submission to a Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  This card was based on a very intricate sketch with many layers.  I could not find a paper that I like to go with my colors, so I made one.  I simply sponged Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist onto Whisper White cardstock and used that for my background.

I decided to play around with this sketch a bit and started by going a little crazy with my embossing folders.  I love the way all the textures add depth to the card.
Then I though I would use some DSP that I have been having trouble figuring out what to do with.  It turned out to be super cute with this sketch.
I removed some of the elements of the sketch, but it still has a similar look.  I think I will be giving this to my daughter's teacher when she leaves her current school.
While I was playing I decided to use this sketch to also make a card for my mother-in-law's birthday coming up next week.

This one uses all the elements of the sketch.  I thought the small cupcake went with the background DSP... and who doesn't love cupcakes for their birthday!
