Birthday wishes and more

Hi Everyone! Well I'm here to share a couple of cards that I have done over the last couple of days. The first one is for the OCL challenge. I didn't realize until after I had completed the card that I actually put the ribbon bow on the wrong side. Oh well, no big deal. I used Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, and Mellow Moss for my color palette. I used the swirls Cuttlebug folder for the blush blossom piece on the bottom and then used some "tattered rose" distress ink around the edges and also a bit of tea dye distress ink as well. The main image is from the OCL set "Savor the Roses" I used a variety of Copic Markers to color her in. I have really liked experimenting with shading and coloring with them now that my collection is expanding a bit.
The second card is for this week's "Get Sketchy" challenge. This card was super easy to put together and in fact I was able to do it in between baking batches of snickerdoodle cookies this afternoon. I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and a scrap of burgundy paper. The patterned strips at the bottom are from Basic Grey's "Indian Summer" Collection. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's "Upsy Daisy" set.
Can you believe I haven't even seen the new SU catalog since it came out last month??!! I have no idea what's new or what's old, for that matter.
Ok, I'm off to do a bit of blurfing. It's been a while since I've been out to see what everyone's been doing. Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by and if you get a chance, leave a quick comment, I love to hear what you all have to say!
