2 Cards for 3 Challenges

Well I finally made time to go down to the inspiration room and turn some of my colored images into cards. I have been busy coloring away, but the weather's been so hot here in Ontario that I've been enjoying everyday in my 97 degree pool. I have so many images colored yet no cards were being produced. Finally last night I decided it was time to create, and I had so much fun putting cards together I had to share 2 with you this morning.
My first card was made for 2 challenges All That Scraps which had a sketch challenge. Here's the sketch:For this challenge I used some paper that I had bought for my Disney layouts made by Queen & Co. called Magic Stripes and Magic Polka Dots. I used a Jenni Bowlin Memo Note Pad and made a checklist with my pen of what you might not like to forget to take to the beach. I colored my CC Design image called Honey Bikini. Isn't she darling. I added glitter to her glasses and brown fun flock to the sand. I colored her with my copics. I added some gorgeous gingham ribbon from Papertrey and some embellishments, a Making Memories Pin, a charm from Stamping Bella and a paper clip from Close to My Heart.
I also did this card in Black, White and Red for the Crazy 4 Challenges Challenge this week where you had to make a card with these colors.
My second card was for the new challeng by Wild Orchid Crafts. They are a new challenge blog and I thought it would be fun to enter their first challenge which is Flowers. No problem there, I have tons.
For this card I used paper from Lullaby Lane and Life's Portraits. My stamp is from the amazing Elizabeth Bell called New Friends. I just love these stamps. They ink up beautifully. I colored her with my copics and added a little glitter. For the green backing piece I stamped it with CTMH's New Leaf ink and used a Prima stamp that I bought at Scrapfest with musical notes on it. I added some ribbon that I'd won in a challenge and my flowers and teardrops are from Magnolia. I added stickles onto my flowers. On the inside of the card I used some co-ordinating paper and some ribbon I had laying around. My sentiment is from Mona Lisa Moments and says:

There is no distance too far between friends
for friendship gives wings to the heart.

I thought this was perfect for this card with the little bird. Well off to the dentist. Hopefully I get more created tonight.
Hugs xx

Your two cards are perfect. The suntanning cutie is perfect on that paper. I LOVE the little charm and the way you made a pocket with the list of things in the background. Love the little added paperclip! Your second card is so adorable. I love all the little details you added....the lace and the teardrops! I LOVE HOW YOU finished the INSIDE! Gorgeous!
