Feeling Sketchy No 63 inspiration post.
It is my turn to do an inspiration post for you today.  I  have a couple of projects to share with you. Both projects are using images from Heather Valentin at  Lacy Sunshine our wonderful sponsor for this month.
This is the current sketch

The first one is a card using the current sketch (No. 63) which I have turned sideways and used Heather's lovely digi "bubbles flowers"
Green card embossed with butterflies.  Layered digi papers "Cherry Bloom Coral" and "Dotty Coral"  from Imagine That's Spring in Bloom paper set.  Printed "Bubbles Flowers" onto white card and coloured her with markers.  Layered her onto pink card then layered over top of green card and digi paper, added flowers and brads.  Green card was then layered onto pink card.

The second one is a scrapbook page also using the sketch and I have used Heather's digi "Eleanor the Artist"
Typed title onto pink card.  Layered digi paper "flower pattern" from Whimsy stamps "MCG fruit punch paper set onto pink card.  Put digi paper "broad lines" from Trimgym across.  Added Heather's digi "Eleanor the Artist" and coloured her with markers and added photo.
