Sketch Saturday etc

This is a card that a friend asked me for - it's for a 10yr old girl who likes dogs, hopefully this will be ok.

The image is a digi stamp from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers and cut out with nestie squares. The papers are K&Co and I've used 3 different shades of purple cardstock, some is coredinations and some bazzill. The flowers were cut from co-ordinating K&Co paper using a X-cut punch with little purple brad centres - I've added a little star charm hanging from a brad behind one of the flowers. I'd intended to attach the charm with some chain but couldn't find my wire clippers in the chaos that is my craft room, so I ended up having to use some thread instead! Ribbon from stash and a computer generated sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I've added this card onto the same post and I'm not entering it for any challenges, because I don't think I really like it! Although it would also fit the Caardvarks digital one I suppose. I've used a digi stamp from Charmed Cards & Crafts coloured with promarkers. The papers are Doodlebug - I bought lots of different Doodlebug papers last week although I really don't need anymore papers, but I couldn't help myself! The blue cardstock is coredinations. I added a diecut sentiment (not sure where from) and then wrote DAD in white pen on the 'blackboard'. I really love the bright papers, but the card doesn't really work for me, even though I followed the sketch from Papertake that I used on a card I liked last week!

Hi Lisa I really love your dog card for your friend and the Dad card is great too! nothing wrong with it But I do know what you mean I sometimes make cards and then don't like them! lol! How is Dex today? hope you have had a better day today! I had a thought about the bath to do you have a shower like an ensuite? maybe you could sit him in the bottom with his legs out and put in some toys too?

I love the doggy card I'm sure the 10 year old will love it. I love the Dad one too but the doggy is my favourite. I agree that you can never have too many papers. I went to a crop yesterday and came back with some Christmas papers and I don't "need" them either!
