2 sketch Challenge

I will post the pictures first and will be back later for the details and supplies.
Hi, I am back~ I have 2 cards to share today. One for each sketch challenge.
First one for Card Patterns Sketch#79
I use Hero Arts, sewing machine and sentiment from CL446 Sew Artsy set and bobbins from CL397 Sew Original set. Pattern paper from October Afternoon Thrift shop. I stamp the bobbins on cream cardstock and cut out. Round up the color threads. Glue on kraft card base.
Stamp sewing machine and sentiment on Rustic cream cardstock and pattern paper. Cut out and piecing on the main image. Color the details with markers and adhere on trimmed pattern paper. Adhere punched out border. Tie on ribbon. Adhere the focal panel on card base with foam tape. Add black pearl.

Close up to see the bobbin detail inspired by Lucy. You can see all her fantastic creations here.

2nd card for Get Sketchy#53
I made this one for Hero arts new September challenge theme:Halloween. I use new set CL468 Frightful. This is such a fun card. I am smiling the whole time when I cut out the embossed ghost. When I saw the cloud on the Halloween of New 2010 Jingle all the way release photos during the CHA week. I am in love with it right away. I got to make a card with this idea.

Stamp the cloud with Grey ink. Stamp the tree on orange card base twice and on the Grey card panel. Mat the stamped panel on black cardstock and adhere on card base. Stamp the ghost with watermark ink on white card stock and use detail black embossing powder.Cut out and pop off on card base with foam tape. Stamp the mouse with watermark ink on orange CS and emboss with black embossing powder.
Punch out. Die cut scallop circle and adhere mouse on it. Die cut a white circle and stamp sentiment. Attach with black brad. 

The BOO sentiment circle can be open. There is a hidden mouse inside. Close up of the embossed mouse.

I embossed the ghost and pop off with foam tape.
