Challenge 46 at Pear Tree Designs-Colourful!

This week's challenge over at Pear Tree Designs is Colourful, so we would like to see bright colours, but no dark colours like purple, dark blue etc. Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish, and the prize is a choice of 5 x digital images or 4 x digital images and 1 x digital paper pack!

The DT were lucky enough to have some of their images to play with, I chose this cute rag doll, thought she was really sweet! I coloured her in with promarkers and added some Glossy Accents to her nose. The papers are from a My Minds Eye pad, and these have been matted with cerise card, I've also used a border punch for extra detail. I added some ribbon from my stash and I punched a butterfly from card and added glitter glue highlights and gems.

I am entering this card into a few challenges too:
Creative Inspirations: Digi Day (I have used a digi)
I love Promarkers: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz: Card for a Child ( this card was made with my little niece in mind, she's 3 next month)

Challenge 44 at Pear Tree Designs-Lace!

This week's challenge over at Pear Tree Designs is a lovely one...we want to see lace on your cards! I must confess to being a lace addict, I love using it!! Our sponsor this week is One Stop Card Crafts and they are offering a selection of ribbons to this week's winner!

I bought this fab Lili of the Valley stamp at Harrogate a few weeks ago and had to ink her up, she's such a cutie! She was coloured in with Promarkers, and highlighted with Stickles for some sparkle. I used some papers from a Papermania Back to Basics pad, matted onto pale green card. I tied a length of lace across the middle, teamed with some pink gingham ribbon. I used a circular sentiment from Lili of the Valley which I inked with a pale pink pad and added some gems to the flowers. The flowers and brad are from my stash.

I am entering this card into these challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
By The Cute & Girly: Cute & Girly April
