Paper Sundaes Challenge #1 - How do you top your Sundaes?

I'm so excited, I've been waiting for this day to arrive for weeks! Today is the first ever PAPER SUNDAES blog Challenge #1 (PSC1)!  When I was recently asked by Shana and Christine to join the Design Team for Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog I delightfully accepted!  This great blog posts new challenges every Sunday so be sure to check back often and play along!  The first challenge was a sketch challenge and is sponsored by Lacey over at Stamp & Create!

My first card was made using one of the stamps from The Greeting Farms "Miss Anya Love" which I first stamped in Memento and then coloured in with copics (E00, E02, E53, E55, E57, RV0000, RV09, RV10, RV19, RV29, RV32 and RV34).  I added Pink Shimmerz to the bottom part of her dress and the middle of the bows in her hair.   The paper used was from the Basic Grey Bittersweet collection.  I LOVE THIS PAPER!  The stamp, shimmerz and paper can all be found over at Lacey's website Stamp & Create so check it out!  Other supplies I used were Snowdots Cuttlebug folder, Stampin Up Pink Passion & Pixie Pink ink, miscellaneous ribbon, Making Memories "Hello" sentiment and some Dew Drops that my I received from my Secret Sister Jenny (Avery123) from Splitcoast Stampers.  Thanks Jenny :)

Before we had a sponsor for our first challenge I had already made this card below using Magnolia's Tilda with a Bunch of Roses which I coloured with my copics and spica glitter pens.  The paper and ribbon I used was all from Stampin Up and the sentiment "Just for You" is from the set "Oval All" by Stampin Up which I received over at the Cdn Express Thread at Splitcoaststampers!  The rhinestone flowers were part of my stash that I picked up at our local dollar store (I think).  Hope you enjoy my card and have fun with Paper Sundaes new Challenge Blog.  I'm already looking forward to next week's challenge :)  Be sure to check out the links (right hand side of my blog or on the Paper Sundaes Blog) to the other members of the Paper Sundaes Design Team, their work is AMAZING!

Both gorgeous, and you managed on each one to match the card elements to the "personality" of the main image :-)
