On a Roll Today!

I made this card using the Sketch and Stash sketch which was very easy to use. I watercoloured the sweet Penny Black hedgie. I managed to use the Penny Black Saturday Challenge colours which are blue, tan and cream. I was a bit worried about the colours as I thought I might not have these colours. But I found some papers I had never used from Daisy Bucket which were perfect colourwise! In fact I used both sides of one sheet lol. I used a brad, ribbon, flowers and jewels from my stash. I made the other flower using the papers and backing card and various punches. The DP qualifies as new never used stash for Sketch and Stash.
Then I made this card for Mojo Monday using their lovely sketch. I was a bit dubious when I saw it at first as I thought it was a bit complicated. But I had a good look at the DT cards and thought maybe I could do it if I just kept calm and took my time lol. I think it may do for the Allsorts challenge which is "English Country Garden" - Both DPs have roses on them! The DPs are the gorgeous Basic Grey porcelain. I made the base card from a matching pink and also used it for layering. Nesties were used for the circles as usual and the sentiment is stamped in matching pink. Green ribbon and a jewel from my stash complete the card.
I should probably do my ironing now but I feel as if I am on a bit of a roll LOL so I may have a look at the Papertake Weekly sketch or a Spoon Full of Sugar since I am out at work all day tomorrow. But for now I'd best post this and link my cards before it is too late.
Thanks for looking and if you like my cards please tell me. I love to read your comments and I also love to visit other people's blogs and see their lovely work.
