Challenge 17 for Delightful Sketches - 2 cards to see!

A double posting day but it's so worth it!
And this post has two cards making a double double!!
It's New Release day at Digital Delights and it really is a super collection of images.
Each Design Team Member got to play with one of the new images along with the fabulous new sketch at Delightful Sketches and Challenges

As always I added a few challenges to help me along the way.

Papercutz want a Teen Birthday card
Stampin B's want Red, White and Blue but non patriotic (missed the deadline on that one :( )
Frosted Designs want a Star on the project
Bee Crafty wanted Stitching (I used Faux) and a digi image
Corrosive wanted Stitching too
Sophisticats wanted Stitching too
Rosie Dees had a Just For Men theme

Card Recipe:
Image - Reece Baseball Batter
Paper - DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Star buttons - Jesse James
Border punch - EK Success
Sentiment - Printed

Inside is a message mat with the second part of the sentiment.

Here's a close up of Reece. I must admit I'm not a huge baseball fan and was a little intimidated about creating a card with him but I love how he turned out!

Now we have a wonderful sponsor this time, Stamp Happens, who are offering their latest set as a prize and I got to make a card with an image from that set of stamps! I had Maddie from the Zeke and Maddie collection. I used the same sketch but added a few other challenges to help me complete it.

Artful Inkables wanted Naughty or Nice
Copic Creations wanted you to use Copic's to color your embellishments. I colored the grey flowers, the fabric brads and the Dewdrops
Drunken Stampers wanted Mardi Gras as your inspiration
Etsy Inspired had a jewelry and mobile store to look at and I chose this mobile as my inspiration, the circle and flowers are almost the same on my card
Fussy and Fancy want you to Dazzle them
Paper Cutz want a Teen Birthday (both cards work for this theme)
One Stitch at A Time had their 1st challenge and they want, surprise suprise, Stitching on your card! (I did faux)
Crafty Creations want Stitching too
ABC were at O is for One Paper
Digital Tuesday wanted All Things Girly

Card Recipe:
Image - Maddie
Patterned Paper - Heidi Grace Midnight Kisses Mini Foil Floral
Foil cardstock - American Crafts
Border Punch - EK Success
Embossing Folder - Crafts Too
Flowers - Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Studio G

Inside is more dp and a message mat

This girl was so fabulous to color, I can't wait to play with her again!

So I've given you two examples of how the sketch works so be sure to join in with the sketch and show us your creations at Delightful Sketches and Challenges
