Sketch Challenges for March/April

Hi Everyone, sharing some Sketch Challenges with you this time.  Here we have a gorgeous card from Anita, and a layout from Heather.
Happy Easter Card by Anita Bownds (CT)
Anita has distressed around the edges of the patterned paper with a distressing tool, and punched 2 butterflies using a Fiskars Punch.  The butterflies were mounted up with DS foam mounting tape to give some dimension, and the edges of the pink cardstock were inked pink.  I love the colours in this card Anita, and the music strips on the pelmets.  Well done.
Bubble Bliss by Heather Bensley
Heather has added some stamping and misting for the bubble effect on her layout of 1 year old Noah.  The border edges are a mixture of layers, and the gathered and pleated ribbons add a little softness for a boy page in these colours.
The light stitching, along with the threading of the embroidery thread swirled between the buttons, a light scattering of stars and a dollop of bling gems and pearls lift the page even more.  Well done Heather, the page is SO much better than the technical department has been able to portray with the camera!
