Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge & CES Bold and Bright

Good morning and happy Saturday. I have 2 cards to share today, each very different. 

First up is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challlenge. Another wonderful sketch to follow. I took a few liberties with this one but you can still see the original sketch in my card. 


My papers are Rose Garden, by Papermania and I've inked them with Brushed Cordoroy distress ink. Stamps are from both the Afternooon Tea Sentiments and Vintage Ornaments collections. I've added some white lace and pink distressed seambinding and finished off by stitching all of my papers. 

***************************
Next up is CES Challenges and this week we would like to see BOLD & BRIGHT! So this is about as bold and bright as I get. 


I also followed the sketch on The Sugar Bowl. My Sassy image has been coloured using copic sketch markers. The papers are Magnolia's Fairytale collections and they've been machine stitched. Lace and flowers are from Crafty Emma's Store. Simply Sassy are having a guest DT call at the minute so if you're interested you need to make a card using a Sassy image and your own style of crafting.

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch {optional theme of Love}
Simply Create - give your heart away {heart doily}
 Mami Doodles – magic of love
Crafty Catz - flowers
 Charisma Cardz – Valentine/love
