another Mo and a few new challenges

So I'm sneaking in a final entry for Mo's dream team guest design spot here for April. I've simply followed the sketch, I had coloured the image and couldn't decide what to do with her and somewhere along the line what started out as a black and white background transformed itself into something more grown up looking with pearly purples and red but hey ho it's all about experimenting... and the La La Land challenge wants homemade flowers.
Secondly is a card using a Karens Whimsy image - a new one for me and incorporating her weekly sketch challenge . Loved this image as soon as I saw it and had to track it down - there's a boy version as well. I originally tried her in pink but me and pink just don't get along well and she looked drab and flat when I'd finished, so I started again prompted by the Res Q challenge colour palette for this week with just a hint of the pink and I'm much happier with the end result.
The cute card Thursdaychallenge this week is dimension - so it's an easel card (what a suprise!)
crafty creations challenge this week is for babes.
phew.... back to the daily stuff..... tfl
