WMS sketch cards and PDC color splash

 I'm so excited that I got my first custom card order by someone I don't know!  I've been asked by a gal in Australia to make her some cards for her wedding.  So I've made 3 cards all based on the Waltzingmouse Sketch, and classic me they're all a bit different.  I've also incorporate this week's Play Date Cafe challenge of black and white with a color splash.   Because I'm a challenge happy girl, who loves comments, I'm going to enter these in a few different challenges.  This card uses the Hero Arts Anyone Can Stamp clear design Friend circle text and butterflies, so I'll enter it in the Hero Arts 50,000 Flickr challenge.  I've also paper pierced out the butterflies, so I'll enter it in Yvonne's Do More With Less Challenge.


This card uses Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist so I'll enter it in the Moxie Fab World: Shimmer Sprays Challenge, now that I write that is there a difference between shimmer sprays and glimmer mist?  I love that this one uses a Waltzingmouse sentiment, thanks Gisele for sharing!  I'm also enjoying the new challenge "Less is More" and they're having a pastel color challenge this week. (Edited to say- you're right DT, this card doesn't really fit that well with pastels, oops, thanks for looking anyway.)



This card doesn't have any extra challenges, just WMS sketch, PDC colors and Hero Arts.  I love all the different layers going on here.
