Christmas cards with Verve sketches

Last Saturday (on World Cardmaking Day) Verve celebrated with not one, but 5 sketch challenges.
I finally got time to play yesterday and here is what I created:
Sketch 1:
For the first card I used the Tired Santa image from Elizabeth O Dulemba. It's colored with Prismacolor pencils, papers are from DCWV (glitter stack and metalic stack)I'm entering this card into Digital Tuesday Challenge - use ribbon, buttons, bling +digi (no buttons, but all the other elements are there) and to Fab 'n' Funky challenge (use a digi)

Sketch 2:
For the second card I pulled out a card kit I had since last year - so I have no idea about manufacturers. Love the non-traditional colors though :) It's again colored with Prismacolor pencils, just inked the edges with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.
Sketch 3:
The third card is again a Christmas one - this time I used SU stamps (Touch of nature, Snow Swirled) - colored the birdie with markers and embossed with clear EP. Then I stamped the snowflakes and brayered the sky. Not your usual Christmas color combo again, but I quite like how it turned out.I'm entering this card into Anything Goes Challenge (Christmas)
The other 2 sketches are great too, but I just didn't have more time to create - maybe next time ;)
