Two Cards today!

Both of my cards use Close To My Heart Footloose Workshop - that is the Footloose paper collection and the special stamp set to accompany.  The sketches were both quite challenging with circle elements, but I had a great deal of fun putting them together. First ink on this lovely set for me, and I will have a difficult time putting it away....
First is  for the challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday #162

another for I Spy Sketches  ISSC 24
Sea horse was inked with rock+roll technique and then set with some foam tape to float him. I replaced three of the button embellishments with sand dollar punched, bent and popped up my sentiment a little, and distressed everything.
Rock + rolled, raffia, circles.....and a sea horse on both.
