Two colours, two occasions, lots of challenges!

Hello to all my visitors, both old and new.   

I said the challenge cards were coming - so here they are..

The first card a I want to enter the following card in challenges:

Papertake weekly - Child's play
Passion for promarkers - Perfect pets
ABC challenge - V for very cute

I made this using a Kanban stamp, coloured with promarkers (cool grey 1 to 4, pale blossom, blossom, pastel pink, blush, oatmeal, caramel, cocoa, vanilla and tan).  Printed the back ground sentiment and backing paper from Craft artist 2 onto pearlised card (this is difficult to see in the photos unfortunately), used a swirly die to cut a flourish from the same backing paper, then added a ribbon affixed flowers and glittered.

The second card is to enter:

Sketch and stash - challenge 121 (old ribbon, stamp and swirl, new colours in promarkers)
Here come the boys - #60 Blue Christmas

For this I used a crafter companion Mulberry wood stamp, coloured with promarkers (denim, ivory, vanilla, almond, tan, caramel, cocoa, henna, lime green, forest green, cool grey 3, cool grey 1, blue grey, aquamarine), the papers were a combination of some free ones from a magazine and Trimcraft Silent night paper pad. I used some webbing behind, coloured in demin promarker, embossed the edges with aged aqua frontage and matted and layered for the sketch.  I then added embellishments to mirror the Christmas lights on the reindeers antler, by punching two different size circles, colouring in Denim promarkers with shading, adding glossy accent on the top, then drawing on the connecting wire

As ever I hope you like them, and thank you for all your comments, I appreciate the time you take to look and give feedback!
