Two challenges

Hello everyone from a wet and cold Johannesburg.
This is our first real cold spell of the winter and wet as well. Anyway a good reason for staying tucked up indoors and crafting, so here is what I have been doing.
This card is being entered in 2 challenges.
Whiff of Joy sketch
A spoonful of sugar - Happy birthday
Paper; White cardstock, DP from My Mind's Eye - Pretty please spring paper, and a textured aqua cardstock.
Image is WOJ - Dancing willow (ready for a birthday bash). Coloured with watercolour pencils, and twinkling H2o's. Put some glossy accents on her shoes and bag, and made her necklace from tiny Jade seed beads. Cut out image with a nestibility.
Flowers: Tried my hand at making the flowers from punch outs thanks to Paola coloured with distress inks. Need some more practise with these.
Sentiment from an unknown brand that I have, and used it as it was Debbie"s birthday (from A spoonful of sugar) Hope you had a lovely birthday.
That's it from me and as we are having a holiday on Tuesday, it is almost like a long weekend. So maybe some more cards, if the weather stays like this. Have a good weekend all.
