True colours ............ and a card for a sketch challenge

The new challenge over at Papertake Weekly is 'true colours' so I have used red, white and blue on this birthday card. The image is coloured with copics and I've popped a red pearl on her scarf - I didn't have a bright blue pin so I coloured one with the a Copics pen to match the colouring on my image! I added red satin ribbon, red and white ric rac, white pin, pearls, airmail twine and a Union Jack charm - all from here

now here is a card I made for the Just Magnolia & H & S challenge  which I am entering - I followed the sketch and used cream picot edge lace, pink velvet ribbon, natural button twine, self adhesive 5mm crystals, a sparkly flower button and to top it all, a gorgeous small square diamante ribbon slide - all from here

and here is a close up of the image - I'm practising with the new distress ink pens, but still used copics for the face and skin! I'm also trying different brushes and different types of watercolour paper.
See you soon, Mary G
