Magical Monday - Sketch Challenge

This week over at the Paper Cupcake Challenge Blog Lucy Marino brings us our challenge. She designed a wonderful sketch to use. Of course you can rotate, flip or stretch the sketch as long as you can see the original sketch in the finish card.

This first card is for that challenge. I pretty much left it just as it was. I used a new released image called "Daisy in Pot" from Paper Cupcakes and colored it with my Bic Mark-its. It was a pretty quick and simple card.

The next card I made my mom for Mother's Day. This image is a new release by Paper Cupcakes as well. It is called "Peony and Anenomes" I colored it with my colored pencils. The ticket is from Paper Cupcakes as well and can be found in the Variety Ticket set. I kept this pretty simple as well, but loved how it turned out.

This next card is an easel card. This image is a new release from Paper Cupcakes too called "Pansy Cupcake". Not really sure I like how this card turned out and I would do it in different colors if I were to do it again. I started with the pansy flower and I loved how the flower turned out, but then I had a difficult time deciding what color to do the icing and wrapper (I should have did the bow in yellow or white)and the wrapper in well.... still not sure. To be honest I don't really like the color skeme at all, but oh well I so wanted to color the flower like I did. Then I had a hard time finding paper to match. I also wish I would have done the butterflies in a brighter yellow or different color. hahahaha.. OK, not really loving this one; can you tell? I colored it in my colored pencils.

Well, I hope everyone in the US had a lovely Mother's Day. I had a nice day, but the best part of my day was enjoying my mom and dad's company for dinner and visiting with them and oh doing the Michael Jackson's dance WII with Avery after they left. That little stinker even beats me in that!!

Leave me some lovins if you stop by... (((pretty please)))

I love all three of these....I can't wait to try the Peony and Anemones and use it on a card. The pansy cupcake is lovely....I like the color combo and the way you colored the icing. I wish that I could color like you with those bics but it hasn't worked for me so far. lol Have a great day!
