Dare to Get Dirty Challenge Cards - Post 1

Hello Friends & Followers!  I was finally able to begin on my Dare to Get Dirty Challenges hosted by Splitcoaststampers.com (note - you will only be able to see the challenges if you are an SCS Fan Club member).  I had hoped to be able to make a separate card for each of the 41ish challenges, but seeing as how we had expected company stay with us this weekend, I got a late start and began to panic that I would not be able to complete them all, and I would like to do so, so for now, I am combining challenges.  If I have time to spare at the end I can go back and make cards for the challenges that I overlapped right?  
     Here is the first card which I created using Some Odd Girl's July Sketch Challenge sketch:
using their adorable Preppy Pups set colored with Copic markers and paired with some patterned paper from MME's 'Sunshine' collection (which I really like!)
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution if necessary).  I figured I would write 'to have you as my Daddy' on the inside and let our furbaby give it to his Daddy for his next birthday or father's day (yes, our dog gives cards of his own).
     This card also fulfills the following challenges:
     My second card was created for two of the DTGD challenges along with Stamp TV's Saturday Night Chat & Challenge to create a floral card with an encouraging sentiment (which I later found had expired the week before, LOL!  Hey, it is still inspiration right?).  I used GKD's 'You are Not Alone' set along with the Floral Fantasy CB EF and Perfect Plum and Pale Plum cardstocks and chalks to create this card: 
I don't know if I am personally in love with this card (I am not much of a floral person or a purple-lover, but someone else might, right?).  Since this card contains embossing I am entering it in Milk Coffee's embossing challenge.  
     So, those are the two cards I have created today thus far, you may seem more later this evening, but if not, most likely tomorrow!  Thanks again for stopping by!

I think your purple card turned out great - such a classy design! Your choice of DP works so well with the circle shaped image. You've arranged the ribbon so beautifully too.
