Sketch Challenge Cards

These cards are both for today's sketch challenge on SCS. For this layout once you fold the card in half you then need to cut approx 1 inch from the right side of the front of the card. It has been a long time since I have made something using this style of card so it was fun to revisit.

The top card is actually the second card I made for this challenge but it is the one I like the best! It uses the tree and verse from Papertrey Ink's "Believe" set.

For the bottom card I used a stamp I purchased recently at a stamp show, the BBQ chef is by Whipper Snapper, I thought he was a lot of fun when I saw him at the show so had to bring him home with me .... he works well with SU's Backyard BBQ set which is what I have also used here.
