Party Time & Happy Birthday

Two cards in this post. I wanted to have a go at a sketch 
I liked the look of.

Beautiful Sketch, nice and uncomplicated.

This was my first attempt then I realised that no I have gone away from the sketch by doing a double layer so decided to use for another challenge that also looked great. Not a sketch but Pastel colours.
Isn't she a cutie with all her presents wrapped up in rainbow colours but
soft rainbow colours and her little friend just finishes her off perfectly.

I cut the single tag but felt it was too plain and cut a slightly bigger tag
out of cupcake paper. Added a bit of sparkle to the presents and
a clear sparkly gem on top. Finished off with the silver sparkle
paper die cut words 'Party Time'.

This next card is also rainbow colours but the vibrant rainbow this time.

I took a piece of watercolour paper and coloured in with a couple of
oranges going into yellows with my Inktense Pencils then used a broad brush with water
to blend the colours into a nice smooth transition. This paper when dry I cut with the
stitched tag die.

The balloons and present areal coloured with copics. I worked out where I wanted
the balloons to go and I used just the string stamp to add some strings for the balloons.
I then attached the balloons to the tag with dimensional foam to add a bit of angle and lift
to the balloons. The present is stuck on flat.

Added the tag to the card base and then the silver glitter paper 
die cut 'Happy Birthday' words.

This one works for the Freshly Made Sketches #256 by Jen.T so will enter that challenge.

I would also like to enter 

Happy Birthday Card.

Happy birthday Rainbow Card.

The card Party Time going with the
topping and 3rd card.

The Card Party Time is for this challenge.

The Card Party Time, the back tag is pattern paper.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
