Inky Impressions Design Team Call cards

Well, here they are! I am trying out for the DT for Inky Impressions - wish me luck!!! Nicole wanted us to showcase our colouring, our colour matching abilities and creativity!
This first card is a HAnglar & StAnglar image someone sent me that I had coloured up a couple weeks ago. The DP in the back is from My Mind's Eye, and the layer of polka dots is from SU. I coloured her using my Copics. I coloured the flower with my Spica pen to give it some shimmer. The little saying is a brad I got from Michael's the other day! The ribbon is red grosgrain. I also decorated the inside with the same DP.
This is the second card I made. She wanted us to be able to think out of the box which is why I chose to make a CD envelope shaker card. It's not your regular A2 card or square card that you see so often!! You HAVE seen these from me before!! I JUST love them, they are so fun to give, and to receive!! I know the kids (& big kids) I've given these to, just love playing with them!!! The shakers inside are little purple X's and O's - I should have shaken it up better before I took a picture. The Rhino, tree and sentiment are all from High Hopes. The leaf is from a camping set I got AGES ago as a gift, but I unmounted them all, so not sure the company name.
I coloured these ones with my Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS so I could show her that I CAN colour with different mediums. I had to dust off my pencils but when I coloured these, I realized how much I LOVE to use them!!! I think I might put my copics away for awhile and get back into my pencils & OMS!!! I love how they blend!!! The ribbon is silver and purple to match the colours in the CS and shakers!
I spent about 3 days fretting about these cards - I hope they get a passing grade!!!! LOL
