Cute Card Thursday and Friday Sketchers

Well, the weather seems to have taken a turn for the better now that it's too late to do anything. Not that I mind really it gave me the chance to get some more challenge cards done, there seem to be loads that I want to enter this week!
This first card is for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge 24 - This weeks challenge is to make a card using BRIGHT COLOURS.

I decided to use Paper Nation's cute little girl with her windmill and coloured her with Marvy le plumes (I forgot I had these!) I thought the dotty background paper sort of linked up with the dots on her dress, some bright green ribbon from Poppicrafts, some little yellow flowers and blue brads from my stash and a little sentiment from K & Co and that's about it.

This second challenge is for Friday Sketchers and I decided to use some more bright colours for this one too. The image was sent to me by a friend and I think she's so sweet. I think she may be by Elisabeth Bell but not 100% sure, co-ordinating papers from my stash again, so no idea who they are by, I'm afraid and coloured with Pro-markers.
