PPA 55 and MOJO 151

I thought I would try and capture both the Pals Paper Arts color challenge and MOJO's sketch challenge in one card.  My nephew just went off to college so I had him in mind while making my card.  After I started putting the card together, I realized it was going to look to "girly".  So I ended up changing some of the colors and didn't quite capture the sketch challenge either.  Oh well, I had fun creating this card.  What do you think? 

 Stamps:  Animal Crackers
Paper:  White, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Summer Sun
Ink:  Staz-On Timber Brown (non-SU)
Accessories:  Cuttlebug stars and circles embossing folder, Prisma Markers, Tempting Turquoise marker, dimensionals decorative scissors (non-SU)
All products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

I still wanted to use both challenges in one card so I decided to make card number two.  I think I captured everything on this card and added an extra neutral color (really two if you count the white card).  Think it still counts???

Stamps:  Funky Four, Vintage Labels
Paper:  White, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  brads (non-SU), Cuttlebug swiss dots and circles embossing folders, window word punch, border punch, Nesabilities oval dies, corner rounder
All products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

I would like to shout out a HUGE THANKS to everyone who hopped by for our August Pals Hop.  Thanks for the wonderful comments.  You sure know how to make a gals day.   

Have a great day,
