May the force be with you!

I made this card for my daughter's 6th birthday (where had the time gone!).  She is very much into the cartoon Star Wars that has been showing on ABC3 of late. The picture is of Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalkers Padawan learner.  I got the image from Deviantart, but forgot to note the artist!  She loved it, which was the main thing.  It was quite refreshing colouring some thing a little bit different that had set colours.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Charisma Cards - No flowers
Papercraft Star - Birthday card or bag

Guest Designer

Last month I entered a card of mine into the Little Miss Muffet Challenge and I won!  I was ablet to choose two images from their store and a third if I was willing to make something for their next challenge as a guest designer.  Of course I said yes! 

The top photo is an altered sketch book with the matching card below.  They are for a friend of Nessa's for her birthday early next month.  I'm quite pleased with the way they have come up.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:

Color Me Creative - Anything goes
CRAFT Challenge - Celebrate
Hanna and Friends - Sketch
Papercraft Star - Use a Stamp

Boy Card

The girls went to a boys 4th birthday yesterday and I made these for him.  The top picture is the card I made, while the bottom is a blank sketch book that I covered to match.  We gave him this with a packet of textas.

I found this car image a real challenge to colour.  I haven't done many non-person images before.  I'm quite happy with the outcome, but I think a bit more practice is required!

I am entering this is the following challenges:

Southern Girls - "All about the Boys"
Mad for Markers - "Masculine Colours"

Mum's Turn Not to Look

I coloured this image for my Mum's card.  I chose it ("Bella Rose Lattice Background" by Heartfelt Creations) as she made a comment about how she liked it.  Red is her favourite colour, so that choice was easy.  You can't see it, but the leaves and roses are actually lifted on dimensionals.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Copic Oz - Flower colouring
Crafty Creations - Mother's Day
Hanna and Friends - Mother's Day
