Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch Challenges

I hope you all have been having fun with Sketch-N-Scraps new card sketches! I know I have! I've always wanted to make all of my cards, and these sketches have really helped me get it in gear.

Here is the sketch for the June 5th challenge:
And here is the card I did for the challenge. I played around with some fun elements and stamped out the title piece. The butterfly on the top was covered in crackle accents to give it fun effect. 
And here is the June 20th challenge sketch:
You'll noticed I used the same stamp for the title piece as the other card. Cards can have the same sentiment but be so different. This card features a large dimensional flower on the front, and was fun to put together.
I hope you are all having fun with the different sketches! Make sure you post your finished cards to the Sketch-N-Scrap site for a chance to win some great prizes!

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #35

Welcome to another challenge by Sketch N Scrap! We have a wonderful sketch for you today. I had fun with this one! Don't forget to head over to the SNS site and show us what you did with the sketch!
My daughter... She has taken after her mama in the crafty department. She is always begging to "help". She loves to color, and she recently found my stash of stickles! These photos are from Valentines Day when she decorated some hearts for her friends.
I didn't plan it, but the overall look on my layout has a "Made in the USA" feel to it, doesn't it? When pulling the paper I was going to use I was going predominately red and decided to throw the blue stars in to give a little more color.

I layered some elements from Elles Studio that work as embellishments and a way to date the photos.
My title piece was cut out using my cricut as per my typical M.O. I use Adobe Illustrator to draw it up, that way I can make it to any size using tons of different fonts and styles.
Products I used in this layout:
October Afternoon • Sidewalks • Red Rover
October Afternoon • Schoolhouse • Shape Stickers
Elles Studio • Handmade Layer Circles
Elles Studio • Leger Calendar Tags

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #34

I'm back today with another challenge from Sketch-N-Scrap! This fun sketch is full of possibilities. Don't forget to upload your take on this sketch to the website for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
For my layout, I used a collection from Simple Stories. The bright colors worked with the fun summer theme. It's so much fun to watch the kids interact with each other as they get older. They are starting to figure out it can be fun playing together!
For my title piece I cut out the words with my cricut. I also covered them in Glossy Accents to give them a shiny, epoxy look. Underneath the title at the top of the picture I used my craft knife to cut out the swirl on the photo mat card. I wanted it to lay on top of the photo rather than be covered by it.
Simple stories has so many neat elements that go along with each line. For the journaling spot I used some of their Expression Stickers. I used my Ranger blending tool to ink the edges of all of the papers as well to get rid of the white cut lines.
Products I used in this layout:
Simple Stories • 100 Days of Summer • 6x12 Page Elements
Simple Stories • 100 Days of Summer • Hello Sunshine
Simple Stories • 100 Days of Summer • 4x4 Quote & 6x8 Photo Mat Elements
Simple Stories • 100 Days of Summer • Expressions Cardstock Stickers
Cardstock • Bright Red
