A couple of challenges

Good morning!  I hope you're all having a fun weekend.  We went to a birthday party for 2 of my nieces and my mom last night.  It was a lot of fun capped off with fireworks. 

This morning I'm going to share a couple of challenge cards I finally got finished. 

This first one is for the challenge at Michelle Perkett.  It is a color challenge (kraft, real red, cotton candy pink and white) with butterflies.  I used Michelle's Butterfly Fairy for this one.  I colored the image with Marvy markers.  The DP is Stampin Up.  The pearls are from my stash.  I used my SU butterfly punch for the butterfly in the corner.

Here's a closer look at the image.

Here you can see the 3D effect of the butterfly.

This card is for this weeks challenge at The Burtonesqe Dolls.  The theme is The Nightmare Before Christmas in July.  I used the Wishing Star Angel image from Michelle Perkett.  I colored the image with Marvy markers.  The cs and ribbon are from my stash.  I embossed the black cs with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  I used my stardust gel pen on the neck and sleves of the dress and the wings.

Here's a closer look at the image.

Well, thanks for looking.  Have a great day.
