My first challenge post

I have recently made two birthday cards for two lovely ladies from the Cardz'n'Scrapz Birthday Club. 

Since as part of my Christmas gift from my Parents, I received a few Lili of the Valley stamps, I decided to use one of them, and by the way practise my colouring a bit (I am new to colouring with Copics and ProMarkers, and these are one of the first images I have coloured so far, so bear with me & also - please share some constructive feedback :)). 

The end result of the colouring was not perfect, in my honest opinion, but in general I am rather happy with the cards. Here they are:

Materials used:
Cardstock: Anita's Square Quality Cream Cards (cut to a size I was happy with)
Backing paper: K&Company Designer Mat Pad - Julianne Vintage
Sentiment Stamps: Freebies from card-making magazines by Wee Stamps & Adam Pescott 
Ribbon & Bling - from my stash
Colouring: ProMarkers and Copics
Inks: Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black & Distress Inks for the edging

I hope the recipients liked my cards!

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

It's the first time I am entering challenges through a blog, so here's to beginner's luck! Fingers crossed!
