Sunday with challenges

A cheerful weekendy hello, crafty folk!
Actually I wasn't at all cheerful this morning... I woke up still feeling tired and with the awareness of another busy day, but around noon I couldn't help but take a nap. It turned out rather longish, but boy did I need that! It certainly improved my mood too, and I decided that what the heck, I might just be a devil and don't get into anything serious any more tonight.
I knew I would make some cards though, this is the thing that I didn't have as much chance to do this week as I usually would.
I made these two so far, and I'm happy with how they turned out. Here they go!

Supplies: cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Baja Breeze), recycled kraft; paper: Chatter Box, unknown (polka dots), page from an old book; stamps: Verve; ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa); pearls: Kaisercraft; ribbon: Papertrey Ink; sewing machine; butterfly punches: Martha Stewart, Cristina Re

The sketch is VLVFEB2011 Week 2, the colours CTD127, and the card also fits WMC42 - Scrappy Saturday Chalenge.
