Uplifting birthday

Week 5 of the 52 card challenge was to use this sketch

 I flipped the sketch so that it was landscape and used one of my oldest Penny Black stamps - Uplifting Occasion.

The pretty paper is a magazine freebie and the punched border is a Fiskars punch.  The sentiment is Personal Impressions and the button was a Die-namics die with bakers twine threaded through it.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and used glossy accents on the pegs to make them lovely and shiny.  

Promarker colours used - Cat - almond, pastel yellow, honeycomb, amber and sunkissed pink, Washing - blossom, pale pink and satin & sandstone for the washing line and pegs, Butterflies - yellow and amber.

And this is the Christmas version that I did of the sketch -

I used a Lili of the Valley stamp, Craft Creations patterned paper and a SU sentiment stamp.  The punched snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch.  Promarkers used - lipstick red, pear green, Hair - pastel yellow, vanilla & march hare, Flesh - almond, sunkissed pink, Teddy - satin, sandstone & sunkissed pink, Wings - pastel blue coated with stardust stickles.
