sprout a smile RAK

I made this card to participate in Sketch Saturday's challenge #264. In celebration of Jen's birthday, we were to use one of the sketches featured in the blog since she joined their team. I chose #216, the first one she participated in, and went with a CAS design, as this is actually a card that will be mailed for a card request.

This was weird for me, as I'd never done this "no lines" technique. Practice will make perfect, I suppose. 
Copics used were YR12, 16, 18;YG21, 23, 25; E0000, 000, 43, 44; C00; Y02, 04, 06, 08. Papers were from Echo Park—Spash. Ink was Versamagic chalk ink Ocean Depth. Added some pink rhinestones to complete the design of the sketch. 

Happy Belated Birthday to Jen!

Flamboyant Gnome

I'm entering this card in Crafty Catz #187, Charisma Cards #23, Sunday Sketch & Stamp #160.
Crafty Catz had a let's go pink theme, to use lots of pink. That's the reason for the flamboyant gnome.
Speaking of, Charisma Cards had a Digis Only challenge. I used Meljen's Designs gnome stamp.
The Sunday Sketch & Stamp had a sketch.

Here's my card:

So, among the supplies used were Echo Park Splash designer paper, pink and brown card stock, La La Land Crafts die for the fence, Rangers enamel accents for the white, Nestabilities circle die, pink rhinestone, white flower by Spare Parts embellishments.
