Two cards today

Look how beautiful this image is! it´s from Designed to Delight and I made this card to play at their challenge this week. The patterned paper on the background is a napkin, they come in gorgeous colors and design lately. I added a piece of ribbon I had for ages, some twine and a button
I colored the Pail of flowers with colored pencils and didn´t blend them because I love the texture of this paper.
I´m playing with this one at:
Delightful Inspiration: use the free image
Cards and things challenges #78: sketch
All that scraps: anything goes

My second card is a CAS one
Very simple indeed! but I like it a lot. I used Home from Shirleys 2 girls and I colored it with crayons and blended them a little bit with mineral oil. Glittered the clouds, embellished with a piece of sheer ribbon and two heart pins (I glittered one of them too).
Here is another picture where you can see the iridescent cardstock.
I´m playing with this one at:

More gorgeous examples of fabulous coloring! Love the paper look on the first one. Is it watercolor paper, or could you use watercolors on them? Love the soft tones. I keep forgetting to try the crayons like you did on the S2G image. You really make CAS look absolutely stunning!
