Multiple challenges all wrapped into two cards

These two cards were made for Taylor's cupcake challenge, SCS color challenge and a ladybug swap hosted by my friend Tracy on SCS. I started out with the colour challenge and thought I'd try out Taylor's sketch along with it. The colour challenge was to use Basic Gray, Soft Sky and Whisper White. The stamps I used for the cupcake card was TAC (The Angel Company) - it was a hostess set called Party Time. I coloured them using my SU markers and then used stickles to make them yummy looking!! I added soft sky ribbon to tie it all together. I did fix the knot after I took this picture cuz it was bugging me that it was crooked!! LOL I used the SU scallop punch and the Marvy circle punch.
The ladybug card was made with Papertrey Ink's set called Little Lady; the "happy Spring" is from a cube stamp I got from Inky Antics last year. The ribbon was in a huge box I bought from Costco awhile ago. I added stickles to the middle of the red flowers for a little sparkle!!! The paper is non SU - not sure the brand, sorry!!!

I agree with Jane. These are both cute, but I LOVE the ladybug one. Besides, I am going to try staying away from sweets starting tomorrow, so that one would just tempt me too much *wink* Kel

P.S.-- We can tell our sisters who we were tomorrow, right?! Let me know if you are going to announce it on the Yahoo group or if we should contact them ourselves. Thanks for everything! It was FUN!

wow, I love these. I saw this layout and thought it would make some great cards with those in-between sized stamps...not large and not small, just in between size~ I really like how you included different things in each square of the lady bug card!
