Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #9.

Hello again,
I visit Karen Giron's blog regularly. I LOVE her cards and have wanted to have a go at her "Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge" for a while. So this is my first attempt!!
And what a challenge it was!!! I don't have a circle cutting system, (I have been patiently waiting and hoping that the new SU! catalogue will have one in it....but alas.....they didn't include it) so with my choices being either trace around a piece of kitchenware or use my punches, I went with the punches.
This is what I came up with........

I wanted it to be something a bit different because the punches don't give you a very big circle so I needed something else to give the card a bit of wow!
I enjoyed making it so much that I whipped up a second one as a baby card as well.....
Anyway, I hope you like what I came up with. Sorry Karen that I had to put a bit of ribbon around the middle of the card so it's not exactly 100% true to your sketch challenge...but I needed to keep the cards closed somehow.
Thanks for visiting.
