Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 May's challenge

Good day

On the first Wednesday of the month it is time for new sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! We have 2 lovely and easy sketches. The ladies did some lovely work with beautiful creations. You can see seasons are changing since brighter colours do become more visible. We do have an optional twist of April showers bring May flowers, but that is optional.

For my first sketch I used this image from Passionate Paper Creations. This was a special requested birthday card for a young lady who do not like pink whatsoever. This really has a island vibe to it, but somehow I struggled to find paper in my stash. I used different dies from Crealies and Nellie Snellen. Papers are from my stash. I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Double D - Birds, nest, cages
Incy Wincy 1 - 25 May - Use a die cut / punch
Crafty Friends #155 - Animals / birds

For my second sketch I used an image from Bugaboo. With Mother's day around the corner I decided to do a bit more feminine card with paper from Mintay's Graceful stack. Image was coloured with Prisma pencils and I added some lilac pearls for a finishing touch.

Challenges I'm joining:
As you like it challenge: Favourite sketches - I love SSW2 sketches by Kathie and a sketch is most of the time my starting point for a project.
The Sisterhood of Crafters - April showers bring May flowers
Stamping Sensation May - Anything goes with twist of flora & fauna
Unicorn challenge #76 - Pearls / Bling
Sweet Stampin - Rainbows & Rainy days

Hope you will come and join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this month to get your creativity on the go with a sketch or two! 
Hugs from Africa!
