Two cards from me today

Well, I need to get these two cards onto my blog because I'll miss the challenges if I wait till Wednesday.
The first card is for Whiff of Joy challenge - the colours - Orange and Teal.
The second card is for A Spoonfull of Sugar challenge - a sketch.

Wow! aren't these colours magnificent together? I love this combo. I've used one of the older Willow images (Willow with umbrella) because I love this one and the way the sentiment fits it so well.

The close-up shows the leaves that I made from a snowflake punch. Well, needs must and all that. I hope it also shows the stickles on the flowers and you may just be able to see them on the raindrops (makes a change from me using glossy accents). Bet you can't guess what papers I used on this one..... yep, they are bearly mine again.

Here is my second card for A Spoonfull of Sugar challenge. This one uses the Papermania Christmas papers from last year. You can see the snowflake in tact on this card. The image is Penny Black 'You Make Me Blush'. Oh my goodness, I can't believe I didn't stickle or glamour dust the snowman for a change.
Both card images have been coloured with Promarkers.
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
