MMSC91 Basket of Apples/ Sweet Peas

Tuesdays come around so quickly - don't they!  Tuesday is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge day and we LOVE that don't we!  I look forward to it each week and know that there is so much inspiration to be found - the Designers are amazing and always bring something fresh to the table!!

For my first card I have used  this YUMBLY image from Paper Pretties 

I have coloured it with watercolour pencils for a change, the look is softer and it works with this image.

I stuck on the small pearls by hand using a glue stick and a toothpick - challenging to say the least!  LOL!  The image has been cut out with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur using Labels 1 Nestibilitie.

My second card is for the "priscillastyles" Design Team and I have used Priscilla's new Sweet Pea Flowers - how lovely is this image! 

I coloured it using my SU Chalks and a Blender Pen.

and popped it up onto a Fleur de Lis Nestibilitie (thanks Bridget) some card stock that has been embossed with the SU Vintage Wallpaper Folder and cut with the Top Note Die.

The cards is finished off with some lace and pearls.
