A Couple of Challenge Cards

I managed to get a couple of challenge cards finished today so thought I would try to get them posted before my Miss V gets here for the day! I think we are going to play "princess" today. LOL. A couple years ago hubby and I got her a pop up 5ft x 5ft castle tent, which she just dearly loves. She dresses up in a frilly dress and plays princess all day long. She's a hoot. Sorry I do digress from time to time, especially when it comes to my Miss V.
I haven't used a Sarah Kay in awhile so thought I would color up one of those for a change. I used the sketch from Stamp With Sarah Kay and then realized it fit the challenge for A Spoonfull Of Sugar.
Paper: Basic Gray - Urban Prairie
Copic Markers
Flowers: Prima, brights
My Stash - brads, ribbon, flower centers
Inked edges with Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen

Next up WOJ . Now this might be stretching it a bit. The challenge this week was stars and stripes. Her top and jeans have stripes and the background paper is stripes. Really it is. I have added a star charm. Like I said I might be streching it a bit.
