Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for August

Good Day

This is a bit of belated post. I have celebrated my birthday yesterday and I was so spoiled by loved ones, that I did not get to my computer to make my post. Luckily Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 is a monthly challenge and you will have lots of time to come and join us. We do not have a sponsor this month, though there is a prize up for grabs, thus we had the liberty to use any image as focal point! I used images from Sheepski Design in both. 

For my first card I used a limited edition of Andrea's Tango dancers. I just love this image. I used paper from True Romance from Kaiser Craft. I made this for a couple that got engaged last weekend. From there my romantic inspiration. 
Challenges I took inspiration from:
Sheepski Design #53 - Make it cute
Creative Knockouts #413 - Anything goes
C.R.A.F.T #608 - Wedding /  Anniversary
Stamping Sensations - August - Any celebration
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour 27 July - 9 August diagonal left bottom to top right - green, pink & flowers

For the second one I used these sunflowers with papers from DCWV's Hide Away stack and some gingham paper from Sunny Studio. I once knew someone who is very fond of sunflowers. She used to say that when she sees the fields of sunflowers, she can just image how that person must love someone. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Color my heart color dare #455 - Shades of yellow + 2 colours - blue & green
Incy Wincy Design - Summer/Beach or animals
Sweet Stampin - Gingham, tartan & plaid
Sheepski Design Facebook 62 - Anything goes with Sheepski design image

Hope you'll come and join us in these lovely sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2
Hugs from Africa!
