6 cards = 7 Challenges

I was on a roll this past weekend and couldn't seem to stop. So here are the fruits of my labor.

This card I created for Just Magnolia Challenge 3 . It is a wonderful sketch by the lovely Bev and I am afraid I have not done it justice, but I had fun and that is the main thing. Image was colored using Prisma color pencils and gamsol to blend. This is also my first time using flower soft. The jury is still out on that.
Paper - We R Memory Keepers - Madame Royale
Flower Soft
Flower - Bazzill
Sizzix Swirls
Border Punch - Fiskars
Buttons, Ribbon, Brads all from my stash

Prisma color pencils and gamsol to blend

This one is for Friday Sketchers and The Secret Crafter - Flowers. I so loved using these papers. This image was colored with my copics and I had to put a little bling in there so I glittered her shoes and added gems to the flowers in the background paper.
