PTT#23 Party Time Tuesdays square card challenge

This is my second post of the day.  Please scroll down for my Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge post.
Also, check back in a few hours for my first 
Art Impressions challenge post!

Today you're in for a treat!  I have two cards to show you.  My first card is a bit of an oops....I didn't read the entire challenge put to me before I started the card.  I knew I had to use a Charlie's Ark Card Topper but
didn't notice that the cards were supposed to be square!  I'm so sorry...as my friend's mom used to say..."do as I say, not as I do!"   Make sure your cards are SQUARE!!  My second card is square (kind of like me) ...so I'm only partly clueless.

This card is for a couple who are renewing their wedding vows.  (thus it doesn't say wedding on it anywhere even though it resembles a wedding card)  It's their 20th anniversary and they're traveling cross-country and stopping at 20 different Major League ball parks.

Here are this week's wonderful sponsors.

Here's a close up of the card topper.

and the inside...

Okay,  now for my "proper" square card for the challenge.  
The image is called Tommy and is from Paper Pretties and the cool purple, ant paper and dew drops 
are from Robin's Nest.  The picnic basket is just some clip art that I printed since I thought
the little bear looked like he was on a picnic.  The blanket is some paper I had in my scraps.

Here's a close up of cute little Tommy!
Clouds are a sizzix die.
Grass is a Martha Stewart punch.

 On first card...
Cuttlebug folders on inside and out
Spellbinders oval and label dies
Stickles and acrylic glaze
