Roses on Paper challenge cards

The Roses on Paper challenge blog put out a sketch challenge and it looked like a fun one.
Go HERE and check it out & play along - you have until Jan. 4!!! Anyways, here are my two submissions for the challenge: (the third isn't a submission.....read why beside the dragon card) ALL are coloured with copics.
The sentiment is from Verve Visuals set called "Beautiful You", the paper is SU - cameo coral, but not sure which series the DP - it was in my unmarked stash! This card is 5 1/4 inch square.
I made a boy birthday card to have on hand using the sketch too. This is a regular A2 size card. The paper and ribbon are SU, but the buttons are from CTMH, and the sentiment is from Verve Visuals set called Thoughtful Phrases. I'm not sure I will qualify for this one as I didn't put an embellie in the top right corner - but I didn't want to as it seemed too crowded already! Oh well!!!
This card isn't an entry because I didn't use the right stamps, but that's ok, I think he is cute anyway & I like the sketch. The dragon is ACE from High Hopes. I used the ROP sketch too, and added some buttons.

Thanks for looking!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!! I hope you all had a fun, safe New Years Eve. Tim & I had a quiet night at home, watched "The Assassination of Jesse James" in front of the fireplace, and went to bed early! LOL

**Blog Candy Alert - I will be giving away blog candy when I hit my 300th POST!!!!! I think I am at 275 right now with this one!!!! More details coming soon!!!! **
