Cards for Children

Over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog it is time for another challenge.  The topic they have is "Double Trouble" and the ever so talented heather is offering a free image if you e-mail her and use the image for the challenge.  I asked for the image and here are two cards I've made with it.
Both cards I have coloured with my Promarkers.  I can't thank Letraset enough for them releasing their new colour chart.  In the past I did struggle find matching colours as the colours didn't really correspond with the colours on the pens.  Now I have sorted my pens as per the chart and find I can easily find colours to blend together.  For the two cards I have used different shades of green.  The ground has been made with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint distress markers and a See D's dotty stamp.  I have used my Pan Pastels for the background.  The papers I was given.  The top card has been finished off with some twine, Card Candi and Craftwork Cards sentiment.  The bottom card has been finished off with some raffia ribbon, Card Candi and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - Animal magic
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthdays
Di's Digi Designs - All about children
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything goes
Lacy Sunshine - Double trouble
The Ribbon Gilr - Add ribbon or twine
One Stitch at a Time - Green 
Pile it On - Happy birthday
Pause Dream Enjoy - For the boys
Cards for Men - Monochrome
