Sketch n Stash 79

Oh this Sketch and Stash sketch was a fabulous sketch!  It was soooo good that I've used it twice, so far!

The first was a birthday card for my bestest friend, Susan, who likes gardening, hence the choice of one of my old Sugar Nellie stamps and papers!  The papers are my new MME Everyday Flair and I love them - the colours are great!

She's been coloured with Promarkers and a little Glossy Accents.  I've used one of my favourite embellishments - sequins and beads - I love sewing bows and details into my cards.

And I would like to enter the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash - Sketch
One Stitch at a Time - Round and Round
Crafty Cardmakers - Beads (in the corners)

And card number 2 is the first baby girls card of the week.
I dug out a few remaining papers from  Basic Grey Sugared pad, not used for ages as I couldn't bear to be using up the last bits!  The cute little LOTV elephant, Blowing Bubbles, makes another appearance as it is so cute, coloured with Promarkers and Stardust Stickles.  Sequins and beads again and I used a heart charm that I cut off Lou's school trousers that are now too short - I thought the squashed heart shape mirrored the ones in the image perfectly! 

Challenges for this card:
The Craft Garden - Monochrome
Passion for Promarkers - Recycle Something (the heart charm is from my daughter's school trousers)
Totally Gorjuss - Welcome
Stamps R Us - Cards for Kids
Sir Stampalot - Monochromatic - ineligible due to too many challenges - ooops!
Basic Grey - Favourite Things (papers, embellies, elephant image)
