Sweeties July Sketch Challenge

I've often looked at the Sweeties Sketch blog and wanted to play along. So this month I was determined and created both a scrap page and card. (Mind you I only did the card late last night.) But I'm pretty happy with how they both turned out. Sorry about the quality of the scrap page. Still trying to work that one out!
