Sketch two-fer

I needed to make a card for a coworker who is leaving -- we've had a lot of those lately in my office, and tomorrow is the second of three send-offs this week. Anyway, I decided to use today's sketch challenge at SCS for inspiration. The first card was kind of a warm-up card, using the sketch, some yummy Crate designer paper and a Michael's $1 stamp image. I finished the card with some hodgpodge hardware and a little sprig of cool stitched ribbon.
The second card is the one I made for my friend. She is leaving for a bigger and better opportunity, and I'm very happy for her. I turned the sketch on its side and used Wild About You for the image and Happy Harmony for the sentiment. I used a white gel pen to freehand the dots around the elephant. The ribbon is May Arts. I tried to find a little doodad for the center of the flower, but I didn't want to use a rhinestone and couldn't find anything else in my stash that seemed suitable.
I'm working the late shift at work tomorrow, and Friday night I have the last farewell event, so I probably won't get in anymore stamping until the weekend. I hope you all have a great rest of the week.
