2 Peachy Keen Challenges and a 365 Cards Challenge....

I guess I'm just in a super creative mood today.  I have found a Peachy Keen challenge that I decided to try out today and it turned out pretty awesome.  I also wanted to submit a second card into another Peachy Keen challenge.  This first card I am submitting into the X's and O's Challenge.  Somewhere on the project we have to have x's and o's.  I love this challenge, bc it reminds me of my mom.  She always put's xoxoxo with her signature on things to her girls (there are 4 of us). 
So here is the card for that challenge.....
~4.25"x5.5"
~Paper from Michael's
~Love Struck Cartridge for heart
~Flowers from Prima Flowers
~"XO" stamp is CTMH set So Lucky
~Ink CTMH Bubblegum


This next card is also for a Peachy Keen challenge....Twist.  We had to use a sketch and also tents/shades of the same color.  I used yellow for my card.  I typically don't use yellows or oranges, but I have some Stampin' Up paper that I haven't used yet.  Thought I would give it a try and I like the way it turned out.  I am also entering this card in the 365 Cards "Happy" challenge.  The challenge also requires you to convey the word happy in the card.  Which I think I did with the yellow "happy" color and also in the present and ice cream.  Those two things tend to make ppl happy. 
~Card 4.25"x5.5"
~Stampin' Up paper
~CTMH Ink: Goldrush
~Brads are CTMH and SU
~Ribbon from WalMart
~CTMH stamp set: Happy Birthday
~Cuttle bug used for embossed ice cream, present and leafy print
~Pop dot from Michael's used under "happy birthday"
