Inspirational Card Sketches

I used the layout from Inspirational Card Sketches for this card as well as the colour theme Buzz Off from Cute Card Thursday (black and yellow).

Papertake Weekly Challenge

I saw this challenge sketch over at Papertake Weekly and thought that one of my pre-coloured images would fit it quite well.

I coloured the images with Promarkers:

Top, Ribbon and Flowers - Lavender, Lilac and Amethyst
Hat - Rose Pink and Blossom
Hair and Basket - Cool Greys

Sugar Bowl Challenge 20

This is my attempt at Gayle's sketch over at the Sugar Bowl. The please include option was paper piecing. It is the first time I have used the paper piecing technique, but still prefer to colour the image myself.
