Pretty Papers

I have two birthday cards here for a little girl called Emer.  This first one is an easel card and it has an image from Sassy Cheryl, coloured with Promarkers.  I had these papers in my stash for a few months and didn’t want to use them because they were too nice!  But Jackie set the challenge for Cheryl as ‘Pretty Papers’ so I had to use them up.  🙂  I’ve embellished the image with the usual glossy accents and stickles, and added some card candi (dots!) on the base of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl’s challenge – Pretty Papers
I Love Promarkers – Dots and Stripes


This next card has a freebie image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.  The backing paper is a digi I bought from Creative Qube on etsy.  I cut the letters with my Cricut but they didn’t come out properly and I didn’t have time to change them :-/  Again, I’ve added some glossy accents and stickles to the image, and a little butterfly and ladybird to add to the ‘outdoor’ theme.  I also punched a heart border using an X-cut punch.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Saturated Canary challenge 23 – Great Outdoors

Creative Inspirations – In the Garden

Dream Valley Challenges – Die Cuts & Punches


Thanks for looking.  If you have visited, please leave a comment!
