There's magic in the air & Sketch Saturday





The challenge this week on  There's magic in the air is to use this weeks free digi, any of the previous freebies or an image from Nina's new store Paper cupcakes. I was finding it hard to decide between this weeks digi or the digi I won on There's magic in the air blog hop. So the end result is two cards! The first card is made with the beautiful Afternoon tea image (thanks Nina!) and is coloured with my new water colour pencils that my lovely hubby got me for Christmas! I also used this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch.

The second card is made with this weeks cute image, Orson with cake. I coloured it in my usual way, using colouring pencils and Sansodor. I added glitter to the cake and stars for the bonus challenge (glitter, bling, stars).

Thanks for stopping by :)
