Three Challenges, Two Cards

Being a book lover and a teacher, I'm very fond of Bookwormabella. The layout on this card features Beate's WSC50. I really love this particular layout. It will definitely go into my book of favorite, go-to layouts...just as soon as I create that book. Can you say summer project? Like one of 20. {You're Fabulous Bookwormabella recipe}
Stamps: Bookwormabella by StampingBella, sentiment by Verve Visual
Ink: Palette Noir, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Tres Jolie DP
Accessories: SU! markers, Nestabilities, Brown brads by American Crafts

This next card is for last week's sketch (SC178) and color challenges (CC168) on Splitcoast. The sketch was hard to work with, but I like the end result. Except for the sentiment, which ended up a bit crooked and small. It was, however, the last thing I added and there was no way I was redoing it! The French Flair background was stamped on very vanilla. It was kind of harsh, so I layered the vellum over the top to soften the look. Both the sentiment and the medallion are stamped with chocolate chip craft ink and embossed.
