Sketch Challenge at Cards for Men!

It's sketch time over at Cards for Men!
You will have until Sunday, March 11th to flip, twist, and work the Sketch.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights:
Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with my little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!!

For this card I used Cupcake Timmy by Digital Delights. I colored Timmy with my Copics then added some glitter to the cupcake and candle flame. Of course, had to use Glossy Accents too!
Looking at the photo, I wish I would have used a brighter background paper and the paw print paper as an accent. I may have to adjust things later on :)
For some awesome inspiration, make sure to check out the talented Cards for Men Design Team!

So Happy For You - Aud Sentiments Challenge

The challenge at Aud Sentiments is to use a sentiment that includes the word "HAPPY"!
Our sponsor for this challenge is AI Factory and they are giving the winner their pick of 3 single images. Thanks so much!
Here is a little bit about them...
AmberInk was started by a mother and daughter team. Amber lives in the East, Pam lives in the West. Amber is an Emmy nominated children's animator and illustrator, who creates from her Brooklyn, New York studio. Although they do carry some clear stamps, the company runs by the premise that their customers are more brilliant than patient. If you've been a diehard clear or rubberstamper, they can even help you with the transition to digital. And don't worry about asking a silly question, because as a retired public high school teacher, Pam has already seen it all. Check out the ever-increasing tutorial links, which you can find on the homepage. Hailing from the Hawaiian Islands, the Aloha Spirit is alive and well at AmberInk.com.
We also have a fab "Happy" freebie from Paulette at Create with TLC. Just right click on the image and start playing along! If you use the TLC sentiment below, you get two chances to with the awesome AI Factory prize!

I'm sorry my photo below is not the best. I pulled out my Baroque Motif stamp set by SU! to create this card.

I used Versamark ink with black embossing powder to create the background. Added some bling, ribbon and wedding charm. The sentiment stamp is also from SU! It was fast to pull together and fairly painless!
