Happy Wednesday! Card time :)

Today I'm going to share two cards that I created for some challenges.

The first card was created based on the following Retro Sketches challenge:

Here is my take on the sketch ... I chose to go with a soft colour palate.  I figure this card would be suitable for a baby shower card ... or a mother's day card!

I chose to use this yellow ribbon to create an over-sized bow ... a lovely focal point for my card!

Now onto another card that I created based on the 365 cards: Day 67 Sketch Challenge.

This is the sketch:

I chose to use this lovely doily sticker and add a dimensional flower sticker to make things even prettier! I really like the wood grain background paper (courtesy of My Mind's Eye!)

I used pearls along the inside of the doily curve for that added extra ... nice and subtle ... but effective!

Thanks for stopping in today!
