Keesh's Challenge & B'Day card all in one

I sat down last nite on a mission because I had to have a birthday card for my husband for tomorrow and to start preparing for a workshop on the weekend. I started off by making the card above for my DH. I used my signature colour again, Chocolate combined it this time with so safron and Vanilla. Its really hard to see with this piccy but I have used a piece of Vellum and stamped the Wonderful husband on that and the trees are stamped directly on the so saffron with the vellum placed on top. I got the vellum idea for this out of the current US Catty. I was left over with heaps of scraps on my table and I also had the sketch challenge for Keesh's Challenge sitting there as well, so I decided to make a matching card for the kids to give Dad as well using Keesh's sketch. I used the same principal just added Always articoke cardstock and some brads. I still didn't get any preparation done, I guess that's tonites job....

Hi Mandy!
In regards to my card, feel free to case away! I think the Petal Pizzaz sets could be one of my favourites at the moment. It's great for scrapbooking too. You may have seen that I made a double layout with it.
As far as your cards go, they are lovely, as usual. I would love to know what you used to cut your ovals & what you think of it.
I hope you have a great demo & enjoy your weekend.
Take care,

Great work Mandy - love the way you've used the leaves instead of flowers for the sketch!
Gorgeous birthday cake too - you little girl has a very clever mum!!
