Inspired by a sketch ....

Good evening ... today I have two cards for you.  I was inspired by a sketch over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog and I really liked the look of the first card so much that I made another!

 This first card is using one of the gorgeous Lilybean Fairies from Pollycraft.  I have used minimal colours and then some icestickles on the wings and a spica pen on the butterflies wings (I think you can see the shimmer in the photo).  The black and white cardstock is from Kaszazz and the rest of the card is just from my stash.

 Here is a close up ...

 This second card I'm totally in love with.  Once again it is a Pollycraft image (guess who has been shopping over there wink wink ... they have some great bundle deals at the moment).  His name is Bronson & Beaker Branch.  I love him and there is a whole set ... so stay tuned :)

I have just used up bits and pieces from my stash and wanted to keep it fairly simple as I was so happy with the colouring of the image.  I embossed the background squares using two different cuttlebug folders, one is snowflakes and the other is christmas decorations.

I would like to enter the first card into the following challenges:-
Pollycraft - #118 Sketch
iCopic - #55 Thankful
Magical Monday - Magical Stripes and Circles
The Crazy Challenge - Something With Wings

I would like to enter the second card into the following challenges:-

Pollycraft - #118 Sketch
iCopic - #55 Thankful
Craft Your Passion - #83 Anything Goes and Brown
Stamps & Fun - #72 Winter
I Did It Creations - Christmas/Winter

Thankyou so much for stopping by ... I won't be back tonight as I am going to spend some quality time with the DH ... we are going to watch TV .. ha ha ha ... we don't do that much these days as I'm always colouring.
And as it is after 8.30pm ... I should be making a move to make him a hot cuppa and grabbing him a snack. :)
Gotta play nice ... that way I get to colour in peace tomorrow night.
