A Pair of Cards

Hello, all! I've got a couple of cards to share today. Over the weekend I was fairly productive and made a few cards, and these two were inspired by a sketch from Retro Sketches. I've been following their blog for a while and saving their GREAT sketches to my inspiration files, but this is the first time I've actually made a card in time to post them to the site. I loved the simplicity of this week's sketch and couldn't wait to play with it. Here's the original sketch:

And here's my first card:

I used stamps and bits from the Simon Says Stamp February card kit. The little hanger embellishment was from the kit....I'm sad there was only one, it's so cute! The washi tape is from my stash, so I'm not sure who makes it.
Here's my second card:
This one uses stamps from Lawn Fawn's Love and Breakfast set. I just did a little Copic coloring, cut the toast out and adhered it with some foam squares so they would look like they were popping off the card.
This sketch was super fun and I'll probably use it to make some more cards in the future. I think I might try a square one next. =)
Thanks for looking!
