We have several wonderful sponsors for this challenge, I have been working with 





My first card uses the All Dressed Up image - Time to Relax


I kept it simple, colouring with my Faber Castelle Pencils and using Spellbinders Classic Circles large and Lacey Circles to mat and layer the sweet image.

The embossing folder is my old favourite 5x7 Cuttlebug Polkadots, and the resin flowers are from my stash.

My second card uses the pre-coloured Melonheadz bundle - Breast Cancer Awareness
