Happy birthday, Brinklee!

On the Sketches for All challenge site, there are two different challenges I did today.  Both of them were for Brinklee's birthday (our little cousin who turns 1!).  The top card used a sketch and also had to be black, white, and green.  I used the Pony Party stamp set for this card and some paper from a Making Memories pad as well as several strips of scrap paper.  I sponged the Top Note die cut with Wild Wasabi to make it match the card since I didn't have any Wild Wasabi scraps. 
I watercolored the pony with 3 colors.  I started with Pretty in Pink, then Pixie Pink, and finished with a touch of Pink Passion.  Finally, I colored in the mane/tail with my Going Gray/Basic Gray markers. 
For the sparkly 1, I used a sticky cut number and sprinkled green glitter all over it. 
***Let me just say, that if you want GOOD watercolor paper, you need to get SU watercolor paper!  I got some at Archiver's with a free coupon.....and I have not been pleased with it at all.  I usually like most things, but it does NOT blend colors at all and shreds immediately when water is added.  I was able to watercolor 3 different colors quickly using the heat embossing tool to dry it out in between and the SU paper held up great!

The other challenge we did, was Halleigh's job while mommy was making Brinklee's birthday card.  We had some leftover bear diecuts from her birthday, so she made a birthday card, too.  Don't you just love the upside down skirt?!??!  Just kidding!  She did it all herself, so that makes me just as happy as can be!
