Sketch Challenge & Petal Rut

When I saw this sketch challenge I knew what I was going to do. I have had this Penny Black stamp, the sensations, for a while. But I have never made anything with it. So I pulled it out! I colored the image with reinkers and a blender pen. Then I used the ticket punch on the corners and added some heart brads. I also used my papertreyink words. This stamp reminds me of my friends and I just had to make this card. It is perfect! I'll be sending several of these out to my close friends.
I have been trying to come up with something to make with my Pick a Petal set from SU. I'm not sure I'm crazy about any of the cards I have come up with yet. The first one is the brown and pink one. I think maybe there are too many polka dots. It needs something to break up all the dots, but for the life of me I can't come up with anything to do with it. I also punched two word windows and wrapped around the outside edge. I colored in some of the dots with a blender pen dipped in a reinker.

The second card was inspired by some DP I have. It looks a little drab but it is all I could come up with. I used chipboard to cut out the petals for the flower. I didn't even stamp them! I used some of the new colors on this one. I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time coming up with something to make with this set. It is so cute and there are so many cute cards on SCS. Maybe I should just CASE something so I can make something I'm proud of.

BTW- I'm still waiting for my catty to get here. This wait is killing me!!!
