A Couple of Cards

Hi there!  How has your day been so far?  I hope it's as nice in your neck of the woods as it is here in AL!  It's warm and sunny and really feels like spring!  Yay!  I'm popping in to share a couple of cards I made.  One is for The Corrosive Challenge #144 (paper piecing and optional use green) and the other is for the Through The Craft Room Door Challenge #21 (sketch challenge) and Crafty Emma's Store Challenge #75 (flower frenzy).

Here is my card for The Corrosive Challenge:

I started with a card base of GKD Chocolate Brown and layered with SU Pool Party and patterned paper from the Basic Grey Wander collection.  My image is Latte Lori from Sassy Studio Designs.  I printed her twice, once on Cryogen White and once on green dotted paper from the Graphic 45 Once Upon A Spingtime 8x8 pad.  I colored her with Copics then paper pieced her dress and shoes from the second image.    The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A green satin bow finished my first card.

Here is the sketch for the TTCRD Challenge:

Here is my card for the two challenges:

I started with a card base of Papertrey Aqua Mist and layered with flowery patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of The Party collection.  My pretty image is Leah Drinking a Cup of Java from Guylou's Inimitability.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A couple of rhinestone flourishes and a few flowers finished off my card creation.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great night and hope to see you tomorrow for another fun Mo's Challenge!
