Two Cards, Two Challenges!

The card-making angel swooped in today and charged up my mojo! I made three cards this afternoon, two of them stretching my attention to detail and color. What fun I had!! So here are two of the cards, one for the WOJ Weekly Challenge and the other for Cute Card Thursday.

(Wonderful sketch, Heather!)

Sweet Willow is colored with Copics and sits atop a triple-stack of beautiful DP called Chloe's Closet by Making Memories. Embellies are coordinates to this cheerful set. Other papers are Bazzill and I used my beloved Nesties to cut the frames for Willow.

(Very fun Sketch, Katharina!)
The new Spring WOJ images are so amazing and here is another beautiful Willow, colored with Copics, and perched atop coordinating flowers. The DP is from Me and My Big Ideas. Other papers are Bazzill and Starburst and the circles are cut with my Nesties.
The third card I made today? Well, it was my own sketch and ........... you'll have to wait till tomorrow to see it! ;-)
This is just the beginning of a great week! Share it with those you love!

Wow, Barb, your cards are amazing, as usual! Love how you did the WOJ sketch. Your colors and distressing are wonderful, and I love that twill ribbon you used! I struggled and flopped with that sketch, but posted it anyway.
Your second card is gorgeous as well. Love the ribbon. Again, your coloring is impeccable!
