PaperPlay Challenges & a Whiff of Joy GDT

Good morning! I hope your Thursday is going well. It's a bright & sunny, yet chilly, day here. 

This week's PaperPlay Challenge is Layer it Up and we would love to see loads of layers on  your creations. I made 2 cards for this challenge as I just love layering my papers :D We are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts and the prize is a cool $10 store voucher.

On this first one I used another Fairy Tales image - Alice - by Instyle Stamps. Now I'm not usually a fan of all things blue when it comes to girls, lol, but I really like the colour scheme for this image. 

My papers are a mix of Basic Grey and Pink Paislee. The co-ordinating ribbon came wrapped around my little man's pj's when I bought them.. definitely a case of recycling here :) The flowers and crystal drops are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

Kaboodle Doodles - Bling it up
Crafty Pad - Girly
Craft Your Passion - Use 2 patterned papers
Top Tip Tuesday - fabulous flowers

My next card is also my entry into Whiff of Joy's colour combo challenge which is Chocolate, Teal & Cream. LOVE this colour combo!!!! The image I used, Ben, is one of the Valentine releases but I made a Birthday card. Works well, yes? lol. 

The papers are Graphic 45 Steampunk - who'd a thought you could make these papers 'cute'? haha!! The green & brown seam binding.. hmm.. I paid a sweet fortune for this on Etsy a while back before it became popular and easier/cheaper to get.. *sulking*. lol. Still, I love the distressed effect on it and am hoarding it like nobody's business :D 
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Ben has been coloured using copics - 
Skin: E21, 51, 00, 02
Hair: E53, 51, 50
Pants/Shoes: E44, 43, 42
Sweater: BG13, 15, 18
Shirt/Tie - E41, 40

Hi Sandie
Wow. The first card is absolutely stunning. I love everything about it especially how you have coloured the image and the way the embellishments are placed.

The 2nd card is also stunning and although the same sketch is used looks completely different because of the colour combo.
Thanks for joining EAC.
