A few late cards!!

I have a few dt cards to post today which I am late with as my computer was broken! Just as well I had these cards made well in advance and posted to the dt blogs or else I would of been late in posting them there as well.

First up is a card I did for the Inky Impressions Inspirational blog, which I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday for but I am now to late to enter the challenge. It's also for the challenge over at Stampin For The Weekend where they want to see your favourite things.

 This card is full of my fabourite things:) First of all the adorable Inky Impressions image (Lili's Present) which is coloured with Promarkers, K&Co papers, lace, Prima flowers and pearl flourishes, ribbon and gems....think I got most of my favourite things on there lol.

The challenge over at the Inky Impressions challenge blog is still running (new challenge starts on wednesday) and the challenge is to use lace. You don't have to use an Inky Impressions image to join in with the challenges, but if you do, you get a second entry.
If you don't have any of these stamps, you really should get some, they are adorable and deeply etched which makes it easy to stamp and get a good impression, and they are already mounted, so you can ink they up as soon as they arrive :)

Promarker colours used (I remember to list them for a change!! lol)
skin: coral, blush, baby pink (for cheeks)
hair: satin and raw sienna
blue clothes: denim blue, powder blue and pastel blue
present: satin
under skirt and bow on present and hairband: antique pink and rose pink

My other card is for Digital Tuesday where the lovely Lorraine is hostess and she chose the challenge theme "Flower Power". Our sponsor this week is Karen's Doodles and she also gave the dt some images to use for the challenge.

Sorry about this rubbish pic, it was taken at night just before I gave it away to someone so I couldn't get another pic in good light.
I used a cutie digi image from Karen's Doodles and as usual coloured with Promarkers (have listed colours at the end), and also added some glitter on bits.
The paper is by Papermania, some Prima flowers with added gems from my stash in the middle and some ribbon "stuff" from Hobbycraft.
A very simple card but I wanted to show the flowers on the paper for the challenge, so I didn't want to add more layers.

 Promarker colours
Skin: oatmeal and blush, baby pink for cheeks
Hair: vanilla and ivory
Dress and flowers: baby pink and cocktail pink
Butterflies: canary and tulip yellow
Grass: leaf and meadow green

I also have another card to show for By The Cute and Girly where the new challenge was posted yesterday, but I will leave that one till tomorrow. The challenge this month is "Things With Wings" and as always we have some fab prizes up for grabs!!

Thanks for stopping by

What pretty cards. I love all the embellies you used on each of them.

I also love the Inky Impressions stamps!!! You did a fabulous job coloring the Karen's Doodle image too.
