Gorgeous Grace

I've been keeping myself busy today while Dex had another trial session at nursery.  He was there all morning today, and I made 2 cards... tomorrow he's there ALL DAY, wonder how much I'll manage to get done :o)  That's it then though, until after Easter - then he'll be going 3 full days... scary stuff!  Anyway, here are my cards...


For the first one, I've (more or less!) followed this week's sketch at Sketch Saturday.  The image is gorgeous Grace from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers.  Papers are Dovecraft 'back to basics' with black Papermill cardstock.  Ribbon & pearls from stash, sentiment stamp is from a CC Designs set.



I haven't followed a sketch for my second card, I was just playing.  This little cutie is Fairy Grace again from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers.  Used a Sakura clear stardust pen on the wand 'trail' and the fairy wings.  Dovecraft 'back to basics' paper, coredinations cardstock, ribbon & bow is Papermania, card candy added to the bow.  The sentiment is from another CC Designs set.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:

Two gorgeous cards - I love the images, their rosey cheeks are so cute. Really simple layouts - all of the focus is on the image and the sentiment and I like that. Great colour combos too!!
