Animal cards

   We have another challenge starting at Send A Smile 4 Kids today the theme of which is animal cards. As usual we have three generous sponsors: Crackerbox Palace (any 3 digis), All Dressed Up Stamps (2 digis of the winners choice) and Deedee's Digis ($15 gift certificate).

    I made my first card for an older child and used the digi 'Owl in tree' from Crackerbox Palace. I coloured the moon.owl and tree using Promarkers . I then masked the moon and used distress inks to create the sky. I then matted and layered it onto yellow core'dinations cardstock, navy core'dinations cardstock and white card. Finally I added the sentiment cut from cream core'dinations cardstock using Tattered Lace dies.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Scribbles Designs - feathers , fins or frogs legs
   Buckwell's Crafty - things with wings
   Suzy Bee's Bloomin' - anything goes with something blue
   The East Wind - ode to nature

   For my second card is for a younger child. I began by matting paper from an old paper crafting magazine onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card.
    I cut a circle of green core'dinations cardstock and matted this onto yellow core'dinations cardstock cut out using a Spellbinders petite scalloped circle die. Onto this I attached peel offs which I had coloured using permanent pens.
   The digi 'Little Treasure' from All Dressed Up was coloured using Promarkers and cut out using a Spellbinders circle die. I then matted this onto pink core'dinations cardstock cut out using a Spellbinders classic scalloped circle die.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Craft Your Passion - anything goes
   Addicted to Stamps - summer colours
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Scrapping 4 Fun - birthday
   The Paper Shelter - make it digital
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   One Sweet - dies and/or punches
   Crafting From the Heart - anything goes
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes

Both cards are fabulous and so different from each other. Love the atmosphere of the first one and the softness of the second. Great colouring of both images. Thanks for joining us for our Dies and/or Punches theme at One Sweet Challenge. I hope we see you again soon.
