Inky Impressions Challenge - Ribbon & Flowers... and one to share

Hi!! We're really back in the swing of things today, it's amazing what some decent sleep can do for a person, lol. 

I have 2 cards to share with you today. The first one my DT card I made for Inky Impressions Challenges with the theme Ribbons & Pearls and the other I made for some challenges.

I used the sketch from Wild Orchid Challenges

Again I've used Winter Fashion Marlee, can't get enough of this cutie!! She's been coloured using Copic markers, trimmed out and mounted with 3D pop dots. I've also added some stickles to her hat for a little bit of sparkle. 

My papers are BG Curio - I am so glad I got 2 packs of this paper, one to use and one to hoard, lol. I used the Martha Stewart Doily punch for the border work. The heart shaped doily has been inked with Brushed Cordoroy distress ink and then I added some star dust stickles. The heart pin, flowers, lace, ribbon & pearls are from my stash.

Other challenges:
ABC DT Challenge - Baby It's Cold Outside
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Be sure to check out my teamies' Ribbon & Pearls creations over on the Inky Impressions Blog. 

Next up is a card I made for the Just Magnolia Challenge, which is Anything Goes. Did you notice that you can now use hAnglar & stAnglar images for their challenges? This is great news as I've got so many that I've never had the chance to ink up :D

Again with BG Curio.. yes, yes I'm a tad obsessed with these papers right now.. I machine stitched all the papers and used a shed load of stickles and pearls :D

This sweet Tilda image was sent to me by my good friend Jan. Isn't she just so pretty?! Coloured with copic markers as always {my poor inks are sorely neglected lately!!}

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz adage ticket.

Other challenges:
Mad for Markers - Anything Goes
Copic Creations - Sparkle
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Sparkle & Shine
Flourishes - Flowers
Pile it on - Brand Spanking New {new Magnolia}
ABC Christmas - A for Anything Christmas

Thanks for popping in today. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
