Sketch Challenges for Cards and a Single Page Layout

 I have completed several challenges this week. They are some of my favorite challenges too. They are the Creative Scrapbook Magazine Sketchy challenge. These are always in a masculine style since they are for hubby's hobby of building a plane in our garage. The next one is Mojo Monday Sketch 547. The last one is from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I used metallics in all of them so I am also using the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge.
