Caardvarks Challenge

I partipated over at caardvarks for the first time! They have some very awesome Sketches,great Sponsors and an awesome Team! They had two Sketches and it was so hard for me too choose,that i did 2 cards! :)!!
Their Sponsor for this Month a Tiffany Doodles.She creates amazing Digital Stamps! You do need to check her out!!! And i am not sure,if it's every thursday or tuesday,where you can download Freebies! Like i said,i'm not really sure!
Even though i am a Digital Scrapper and do hybrid i never used Digital Stamps before.So,i went ahead and downloaded 2 Freebies.A super gorgeous Birdhouse,and a image called Topiery! The reason why i downloaded the Freebies and didn't buy any,was because like i said i've never done any card using Digital Stamps.And i wasn't sure,how they would turn out after i'm done with them! :D I just wanted to make sure,i would not mess up the whole image! But now,where i know how,i will for sure buy the one or other image soon! They are really fun to work with!!

Here are the Sketches:

Ok,my first card i using the image,Topiery!!
I printed it out,colored it with normal Pencils,then cut the images out and poped them up with Foam Dots:

Supplies: Bazzill,BasicGrey Papers,Stickles,Button,Martha Stewart Edge Punch,EK Success Edge Punch

And my next card is using the Birdhouse!
What i did here is,i paper pieced it.I printed out the image twice.I took one and cut it in 3 parts.The roof,the front the and side part.I then used the 3 pieces as a tempate,traced them on pattern paper,cut them out and glued them ontop of the other image i printed out!
