Using up the DP pad continues...

Today the snow is coming down thick and fast, a perfect day for crafting!  I'm continuing with my quest to use up the gorgeous Basic Grey Out of Print pad that is on my desk and I have made another couple of cards. 

The first one uses a super layout from Sketch Saturday along with a topper from the Hobby House, by Sylvia Zet I think.  Some ribbons and pearls finish it off.  Please note this is a topper and NOT coloured by me - if only!  I'm also entering Paperminute's Challenge of butterflies in springtime - the butterflies are small but they are there on the topper!  Also Anything Goes vintage/shabby chic.

 My next card is a real stash buster, I found this cute Whiff of Joy image in my box, already coloured.  I coloured this so long ago that I'm pretty sure it uses Promarkers not Copics!  The sketch comes from this week's Cupcake Crafts Challenge .  Every other challenge at present seems to be about hearts, or lurve or red.  The patches on this little girl's overalls are hearts so I am entering this card for a few hearts and flowers challenges, sorry no Valentine from me this year:(.
My card is for:
Cupcake Crafts - sketch
Flourishes Timesless Tuesday - put your heart on it
Papertake Weekly - hearts and flowers
Corrosive Challenges - hearts and flowers
Great Impressions - have a heart
Catch the Bug - affairs of the heart
2 Sisters - hearts
