Crafty Cardmakers challenge 10 - sketch



Time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers - this time it's a sketch, a lovely one too, hope you'll have a go :o) I needed two similar cards so I've used the sketch twice!

For both cards I've used a large 8 x 8 card blank, a Digistamp Boutique image coloured with promarkers - with lots of glamour dust, a chalked sky background and a sakura clear glitter pen for the falling snowflakes. The papers are all MME, with pink coredinations on the first card, and blue DCWV cardstock on the second one. I've used a Nellie Snellen die (again!) to cut out the images, and mounted them on scalloped circles that I bought from a craft fair - I still haven't got round to buying scalloped circle nesties! I used the Cuttlebug icicle die to cut some large snowflakes, covered them with glamour dust, and then added half pearls for the pink/ green/ blue card, and rainbow drop beads for the blue & red card. Added computer generated sentiments, and then because I didn't quite feel 'finished', I added half pearls around the scallop circles.



I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
