Ally Scraps June Sketch Challenge

First of all, let me wish a very Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!  I lost mine 7 years ago to illness, but i do have a special thought for him in my heart each and every day! 

Speaking of which, the first project i'm sharing with you today is a Father's Day card i made for Yves' dad, my future Father-in-Law.  It was inspired by this card sketch from Ally Scraps for their June challenge which required me to made 2 cards, one using the sketch as it is and a second one using the sketch mirror image, backwards or upside down.

As you can see, I decided to flip the sketch vertically. Here is a close-up shot...
The other card i made for this challenge, using the sketch as is, was for my cousin's baby girl who i met for the very first time yesterday. Sooo precious!
I used different punches, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug embossing folders, stamps to make the different elements on this card.  I'm pretty happy with the finished result. :)

On the inside of the card, i used a rub-on sentiment from KaiserCraft.
Thank you Ally Scraps for inspiring me to create once again! :)
