A few challenge cards...

Over at Glitter n Sparkle this week, the challenge is to 
"add a sentiment"... and I was lucky enough to get two images!

This first image was my fave - sooo cute! (Janessa and Kitty... from Digi Darla)
I tried to give her a really soft, subtle, gentle feel...
and so used my watercolour pencils. 
I punched some flowers and butterflies
and die cut the flourish and the label shape in the middle...which I also embossed with my swiss dots.
As the image reminded me of my niece... 
and her love of cats, the sentiment did too...  I have had it on the pc for a long time, 
and never used it! 
Because I didn't want to use a backing paper for this card, 
I selected a pearlised card...I think you can just about see the sheen. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

This was the second image I got this week - Happy Lil Boy...from Digi Darla.
While the watercolour pencils were out, I used them for this image too...
think I need to pick up some more promarkers...I love using them - but only have about 
20 of them...and never the colours I seem to want! :)
Maybe I will try copics... hmmm..
Anyway - I digress...
The backing papers are dovecafts papers
and I used my fancy scissors to cut that edge on the thin 
stripey paper along the bottom border.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Creative corner - green - 6 March
Delicious doodles - one for the boys - 5 March

Thank you for joining the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges for our current fortnightly challenge "Diecuts".

What a really pretty girly card. Love the simple colour pallet, everything ties together so well. The character image is adorable and coloured wonderfully. Great texture and use of diecut elements.

I hope you will join us for more of our future challenges, as well as other events we have coming up.
We have a new Facebook group, where you can find more details of our challenges and DT. We hope you can join: feel free to invite your friends.
