ICS #25 and PfP #8

Morning! Two challenge cards to show you today (can you tell I've got time on my hands?!). The first is for Inspirational Card Sketches. They are on number 25 but this is my first attempt at one. I've kept it quite simple using mainly black and white as my original intention was to use this for a man's birthday. Now it's finished I'm not so sure whether it's "blokey" enough. As I've said before, I struggle with men's cards!
Supplies used: Image - Cupcakes by Pink Petticoat, coloured with ProMarkers and Glossy Accented, Papers - Doodlebug Paper Potpourri Beetle Black & Lily White, Sentiment - Craftwork Cards, Bracket - Tim Holtz Grungeboard, Crystals - Papermania.

My next card is for the Passion for ProMarkers Challenge Week 8. The challenge this week was to use the colours Ruby and Gold. I already had these images coloured but was waiting to see what the added twist would be - this week it is jewels and gems - perfect for me! This card will be going to a good friend of mine (who I also work with) who has been a complete rock throughout my whole pregnancy with lots of advice and cuddles when required. And even though she has a little girl of her own she made the time to fit in lots of visits to hospital when I was ill with hyperemesis. She actually introduced me and my hubby so is VERY excited about our forthcoming arrival!

Supplies used: Images - Woodware "Indian Dreams" Rubber Stamps, coloured with ProMarkers (Gold, Ruby, Maroon, Warm Grey 2 & 5, Cool Grey 4), Gold Stickles, Papers - Sandylion/Kelly Panacci "Swirled Fusion" & K&Co/Brenda Walton "Dollhouse Peach Paisley", Crafty Sentials Crackled Washi Paper, Magic Mesh, Ribbons - Papermania (the red/maroon one) & snaffled from a gift box (the gold one), Sentiment - Making Memories Mini Shimmer Alphas.
