Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write Markers and I colour some cute images for Birthday Cards

Hi guys, I do actually have a couple of cards to share with you... Are you surprised after seeing scrapbooking/beyond the page items? I kind of lost my card mojo for a little while, so focused on other things... Here is the first one for you
I made this one for my first full Design Team post, over at Inspirational Card Sketches which this week was to use a sketch from another site. So, my sketch comes from Pretty Patterns Sketch #41, which I turned on its side. The stamp is from Bugaboo Stamps, and is a digital stamp. I just printed him on Watercolour Paper and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write Markers. The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye, and the sentiment is from Grunge Rock from Stampin' Up! I am also entering this one into the Simon Says Stamp something New challenge, as this card was for my first design team sketch, and also the first time I've used a digital stamp on a card. 

This second card is really cute too
Now this little guy is from The Greeting Farm, (isn't he adorable?) and he was coloured using my Stampin' Write Markers on watercolour paper. I cut him out and popped him on some white which was layered with Old Olive. The other colours in this card are Sahara Sand and Island Indigo. I also used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder on this and some more patterned paper from My Minds Eye. I'm not entirely satisfied with this card, I think it's because of that skewed piece behind the main image... it bothers me that it's not straight, but the challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches called for a skewed back piece....  I am also using inspiration from Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger and entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Anything Goes Challenge (there's a touch of twine on this card)
Thanks for dropping by!

I like the skewed piece behind, just like a little boy to stick something in, right?
