Two cards today

First of all apologies for the squinty photo, I tried to straighten it but it did not want to play!! This gorgeous image is Goldilocks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I just love colouring her hair!! The DP is MME La Paperie, inked with red chalk ink. The plain and glitter cardstock are from stash and the sentiment comes along with Goldilocks. It also looks squint on the photo but not in real life- think my camera has been on the G & Ts!!!
Here is a closer look at the image

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Kraftin' Kimmie # 64 - seeing RED
Crafty Creations - use 3 words
Crafty Emma  - red and romance
Gingerloft - red

My second card uses one of the wonderful Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie. This lovely lady is called Windswept and I spent ages trying to get her hair right - needing more practice methinks but not bad for the first attempt. 
The image is coloured with Promarkers, DP is Memory Box and the cardstock and sentiment are Stampin' Up!
I punched down the edge with a Martha Stewart punch. The roses are Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
