Saffron Fizz

It is amazing what I can accomplish when I get home from work at a decent time. Now by accomplish I don't mean cooking, cleaning, picking up... That would be nice. But I felt my time would be much better spent in the bubble! My slacker time at work is about to come to a rapid deceleration. New deadlines.

So lets get rippin' on the cards.

These two are a sketch design challenge from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I liked the layout so much I made two cards from the one sketch.
