Birthday Cards & Card Shark Birds :)

Happy Sunday - I've bee a busy girl this weekend, working hard to get some cards made in order to enter some challenge deadlines.  So first up is a card I made for the following challenges:

Crafting by Design:  Colors of the Sea plus 3 from itinerary (I used #'s 1, 7, and 9)

I used Swimming with the Fish Mermaid from A Day for Daisies, printed on DP (Authentique) and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits with lots of added Stickles in Frosted Lace.  I attached a little wooden star I had, colored it with Gold Stickles & drew on a couple of eyes so he'd look like a starfish.  hee hee

And this next card is for the following challenges:

I used a past freebie, You Color my World, from Whiff of Joy.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and kept it pretty clean & simple.  Papers are from My Mind's Eye (one of my favorite pads, it's called Handsome Boy or Fine & Dandy Boy (they must have changed the name because I have 2 identical pads with different names).  I added the sentiment with my Dymo Caption Maker.  

And last but not least - for the:

From the Heart Sketch Challenge

I used Birdbrain Card Sharks, paper-pieced and colored with a variety of mediums.  I used mini playing cards in the background - papers are from Carta Bella. Peace.
