Two Cards - One Challenge

I needed to make a couple of cards to send off to a few friends, so I based both of these on Nicola's sketch over on My Paper World.

The first card I used some scrapbook paper from my stash and the little bee image is from pink petticoat - I printed it out and then watercoloured it and added some glitter to it's wings. The gem flowers are crafty bitz embellishments.

The second card I used some lovely papers and a stamp from Crafty Individuals. The four birds are stamped onto an alcohol inked background. The little "for you" which I also stamped was part of a PIF I received from one of my SBS-13 sisters, Richelle. I then punched a couple of little flowers and attached them using brads.
