2 cards for a few Challenges :-)

The first card was made following Martine's fab sketch on the Basic Grey Challenge :-)

I used my new Lili Of The Valley Wedding stamp that I won on the LOTV Challenge :-) thanks xx The theme is to use silver and blue and I immediately thought 'Wedding' but for some reason my card turned pink, though there is blue on it :-)
I coloured the image with copics and added stickles to the flowers. the edges were inked with spun sugar distress ink.
The papers are Basic Grey Sugar Rush and silver stardream.

The next card I am entering into the Just Cute Bears Challenge,,, Yellow and Green

I won this cute Cuddly Buddly stamp on the Just Cute Bears Challenge :-) thank you x The image was coloured with copics and stickles added for sparkle :-) This is a small 10x10cm card and I used up scraps of paper from the Wild Rose Studio on this one :-)

I am also entering this into the Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge whose theme is Animal Antics

thanks for looking :-) i appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)

Hi Lols
I love that image must go do some on line retail therapy :)and as I adore Basic Grey papers this would have to be my favorite, although the cute bear entry is equally as intricate, I always love that little bit of sparkle

Gorgeous cards Lols! I am having the same problem as you where the colours of the card changes halfway through making them. What is that all about??? Too much chocolate maybe??? Hope you are having a lovely Easter.
