Sugar Nellie Daisy & Postbox

Hi everyone! Here are a couple sketch challenge cards.



The first one is for today's SC212 sketch on Splitcoast. My friend Janice sent me these cute Sugar Nellie Daisy images....thanks Janice, the stamp is super cute!!. I colored two images, cut the second one out, and popped it up on Dimensionals over the base layer. The punched sentiment and the blue mat circle are also up on Dimensionals. The amber-colored gem in the center of the flower was given to me from my sweet friend Silke....thanks Silke, these are great!!

What a beautiful card, Denise. Skin tones are one of the hardest to achieve and it looks like you've mastered it on both of these cards. I adore the piercing you so painstakingly added.
