A La Card Monkey Challenge 107

I made these cards for the A La Card Monkey Challenge 107. I turned the sketch on its side, I hope this is OK and it still counts.

I am trying out a new thing of making the same card but in a couple of colour ways. I want to give the cards I make to charity so hopefully this means I can make more cards and cut down on the faffing that I always end up doing when I start each card – that's the idea anyways!?

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Carfting. Lorry :o) xx

Here is the challenge sketch:

And here are my 'turned on it's side' efforts:

Stamps: Sentiment, Create a Cupcake from Stampin Up. Flower from Kanban Spring Garden.
BG Papers: Stripes and checks from the internet that I re-coloured in  Photoshop, Purple dots I made up and the Green dots were a freebie from a magazine. Plain paper from my stash.
Dies: Nestiabilities Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles.
Punches: Word Window and Modern Label both from Stampin Up.
Embellishments: Red Ribbon and Red gems from Hobby Craft.
