One lovely sketch in two scenes

I fell in love with the sketch 39 from Card Patterns as soon as I saw it. It has beautiful proportions and great versatility. I decided to use it for two different themes, covering some other challenges.
The first one is also my answer to Vintage Style at OCC:


I was very impressed with Renee Van Stralen's sample of the sketch, that I went for similar style and choice of colours. I only added a stamped flourish around the border, but I'm not sure whether it was the smartest idea :)
It's not too apparent on the photo, but the petals of the flower are layered.

Here's my second card:


I wasn't planning to make any more Halloween cards this year, especially that it's already past this holiday, but since two of my favourite challenge blogs were asking for it, i couldn't say no to this :) Which ones are they? Caardvarks with "Boo!", and Crazy 4 Challenges with Very Scary.
The sentiment and the web with a spider are my creations.

Thank you so much for visiting today, see you soon with my new project!
