Tickled Pink & Sugar Nellie Challenges

Hi everyone and happy Easter Weekend.

I have 2 cards to share today. First up is my entry for Tickled Pink's Christmas Challenge, themed Jingle Bells. Kellie recently gave out a free Christmas digi of choice to those who were lucky enough to be a fan of Tickled Pink's  facebook page and I chose Lil Christmas Evie to work with. 

My papers are a mix of music note card from An Siopa Bui, Basic Grey Dasher and Pink Paislee Father Christmas. They have all been machine stitched before I added some lace and tinsel ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated.

Copics used - R24, 27, 29. E00, 01, 11, 42, 43, 44. R20. G20, 21, 24, 82, 85. Y21, 28. BG05, 07. C3, 5, 8.

Challenges - 
 Aud Sentiments Challenge  - Anything goes.
Stamp Insanity - Challenge #SISC56: Use metal.
 Top Tip Tuesday - Open Challenge
Christmas Card Challenges - Anything goes

Next up is my entry for Sugar Nellie's Facebook page Challenge which is Spot n Dots. It's been a while since I've used my Gorjuss girls. 

The papers I've used on this are from Memory Box "Brioche". I bought them with the $25 store voucher I won from Colour Me Creative, along with Minuet, also by Memory Box.  Such fabulous papers.

This is the first time I've tried red hair and I really love the tones I got from the copic combo I used, which was E07 & 09 and E18 for the darker areas.

Other copics used - E00, 01, 11. Y00, 02, 11. BG70, 72. R20

Challenges -
AiFactory - Flowes in bloom.
C.R.A.F.T. - Challenge #99: Flowers
Crafty Purple Frog - Texture & ribbon
 The Rubber Cafe - Polka dots.

Well that's it from me for today. It's back to stash sorting now.. 
Have a great day
