Paper Smooches Sparks DT Call

Hi all! I have a couple more cards to share. I'm also entering them for the Paper Smooches Sparks DT Call:

Here is my first card:

Wait for it - here is the inside:

LOL! I know right?! I based my card (loosely) from the January 2013 Picture Perfect challenge, and also used Retro Sketch#63.

I had the stamp for the inside sentiment already, and as soon as I saw the shopping bag die I HAD to use them together! I even crinkled and distressed the bag to look old! LOL! I've said it before and I'll say it again: I LOVE a good punny line!!

Here is my second card:

and the inside:

I based this card from the October 2012 Picture Perfect challenge

Another graduation card done! Woo hoo! I googled the school colors and mascot again. Go figure, the colors are black white and 'Vegas gold' (whatever that is. I just went with yellow) The mascot is a phoenix, and this is the actual mascot. I just saved the image onto my computer. (There's a tiny amount of orange in the flames, so I hope you'll forgive me for that!) I embossed congradulations in white and colored the photo corners with a yellow marker before adhering to the grey card base. After stamping the inside, I colored a couple of the letters with gold Smooch ink.

So there you have it. Wish me luck! Oh, and if you are also trying out, good luck to you too! Thanks for stopping by!
