WEEK 5 - Billie and Monika background - DOTS BACKGROUND and A "STYLE" Card (with little lady image)

As I mention you on this post, that I make a challenge between me and  Billie Anderson from Ink On My Finger this time is our WEEK #5, I have choosen the theme this time, we will challenge to make a Dots Background.

I sponged all my background using my distress ink. I first punched some circle and made it as stencil for grey, blue and yellow dots. Here is the look of my sponged background.

I need a birthday card for a mother that her son was in the same kindergarten with my son. Her name is Heidi,
I need to put her name thats why I used this lovely Banner cut out I have got from Cohenna (Monika), dear Monika many thanks for this lovely Banner. The Alphabet Stamp is from Hero Arts. The Happy Birthday I have got from Dawn in New Zealand, dear Dawn...this Cut out really nice and it means so much for I have used them all :) many many thanks dear Dawn :)

Hope you like our post, and dont forget to visiting Billie´s Blog and see the card that she made and leave her some love :)

My Second card I made, using my old collection of stamp from Pink Cat I remember it has never been used :). I colored the Image with Copic Marker and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Here is my CAS Card:

The Image is a little lady and her birdie in a "stylish dress"

Do you know how difficult to colored this little lady (and the more little birdie)? (*grinz*) I used my red pen for her sunglasses and her shoe but its sooo tiny also I need maybe next time double glasses to colored this Image for more details :)
