Father's Day card #1 & #2 - for Swap

Cards made for swapping but instead of doing 4 cards exactly alike, I'm going to use the same background paper, but try using sketches to make each one unique.
For this card I was following SplitCoastStampers sketch #227. I used a red polka dot ribbon for one of the "blocks" and I had to increase the size of the skinny oval to fit my TAC stamp. Speaking of the stamp, I've trimmed it so I don't have so much space beside the letters to have ink stick to. Hopefully, it will improve the looks of the image without sacrificing the stamp's ability to stick to the acrylic block.

This is another Father's day swap card. Again I was following SplitCoastStamper's sketch but this time it was sketch #229. I used my cuttlebug on the golden yellow cardstock and took a green water color pencil to fill in the swirls. The gray striped paper is creative memories and the present image is a TAC stamp that I colored with a metalic green pencil. I inked the edges of both of those papers (almost got too much on the cream but I think I like it).
