SALS Sketch #17

This is another scheduled post just in case I'm not back from the beach!! Bit cold for the beach I know but it's just nice to get away!!
I have two cards to share today following this fabulous sketch!!

For this challenge we are being sponsored by Ai Factory
For my First card I used Ella ballerina. I had fun creating this card as I had my niece in mind while making it!! She loves ballet and is always practicing her dance moves!!

 I coloured Ella Ballerina in with Tria Markers. The paisley paper is from My Minds Eye that I recently won... I've had these brads forever and finally they were perfect for this creation. I made the flower up the top right corner from the MFT die-namics Prima Donna Petals and added some flourishes, the butterfly and the tag also from MFT. I distressed around the edges of the paper and added rhinestones to finish it off.

For my second card I used Cowboy!! I just loved this guy and thought it was perfect to make a card for my nephew who turns 4 in a few weeks!!
I chose the paper first which I think is from kaisercraft, then coloured in Cowboy using Tria markers!! I also coloured in the WANTED sign with Tria markers. I then went ahead and put my card together following the sketch, adding stars, buttons and a couple of the accesories that came with the cowboy!! And to finish off the card I painted the number four with a adirondack paint dabber!!
Oh and of course I added the photo of my nephew!!
I jut love the way this turned out!!
Well you've seen my creation, now head on over to the Seems a Little Sketchy blog to see what the rest of the sketchy gals have created!!
