challenges...

Since the weather was so yucky yesterday I spent the day indoors watching movies and coloring. Is that sound like a good day or what? I combined two different challenges together for this first card. I did the Kraftin' Kimmie's; Paper Piecing challenge and the Crazy 4 Challenges; polka dot fun challenge. I have no idea what I was thinking to use this image for paper piecing, everything is paper pieced with the exception of Charlotte's skin and hair and it literally took me 2 hours to cut out all the teeny, tiny bits but I think it was worth it!
What I used:
Kraftin' Kimmie's Charlotte, SU Lots of Thoughts
GP white card stock, kraft
Memento black stamp pad
My Mind's Eye Magnolia designer paper
olive wide grosgrain ribbon
clear button, twine
Copic markers for flesh, hair and shadow
white gel pen

My second card is the first card I have made for one of the Sweet Stop sketch challenges. Since I am Sweet 'n Sassy Digis January guest designer I felt it would be appropriate to play along using this adorable Be Mine Cocoa image.
What I used:
chocolate card stock, GP white card stock
Basic Grey Bittersweet designer paper
checked brown ribbon
Prima flower
brown cord brad
Copic markers
