Smorgasbord of Cards

It's Wednesday! So it’s time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! As I DT I get to choose the images that I want to use. This week we have two sponsors and I wanted to use images from both… so I did!
The first card features a digi from Sheepski named Cornflowers. I colored the digi with my Spectrum Noir Coloring System alcohol markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen then layered it atop a wonderful background pattern available from  a clipart company named gograph for just $3. The Hello sentiment is a freebie from And the inside sentiment is a freebie from Decosses Dynamite Doodles.
