This week I decided to enter two sketch challenges - Mojo Monday (of course) and Sweet Sunday. The Mojo Monday challenge was a great sketch and easy to follow.  I chose products from the new Stampin' Up! catalog for this challenge:

I love gold and used two different types of gold on this card - brushed and metallic.  The stamp set I used is called "You've Got This" and the ink is gold metallic. The brushed gold background papers don't show up very well in the photos but is one of the papers in the new Designer Series Paper Stack (neutral colors).  The gold foil carried over into this year's catalog and I was elated about that.  The "Miss You" is from the stamp set "Crazy About You". 

Here's the sketch that inspired my card:

I decided to use my favorite stamp set and paper for the Sweet Sunday challenge.  Both the Maritime paper and the stamp set "Sea Street" retired (sniff, sniff).  So one last card for old times' sake!

 Adorable octopus, yes?

And here's the sketch that inspired my card:

Hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful week!
