Mid Way reminder projects for Crafting Musketeers Challenge (Anything But Square)

Crafting Musketeers challenge blog's theme this month is: Anything But Square

I have placed photos of 2 cards on here as I had forgotten that I had already made one card so I made another. Fran, one of our DT coordinators has uploaded both on our challenge blog.
This first card:
The image is taken from the cdrom Simpler Times. Brought to us crafters by Katy Sue Designs (our sponsors for this month) but all the images are designed by Elisabeth Bell (who is one of my favourite designers).
You can see on the photos below more or less what I have done & used. The pens I have used are Promarkers and Graph It's. I cant remember all the colours I used but the girls blouse & trousers are coloured in Promarkers Buttercup, Primrose & Lemon with a slight touch of Graph It No, 2105.

This 2nd card is based on a free download (one of 4 available) from Katy Sue Designs website but  for this & other free downloads click HERE.
I used the Little Bo Peep Has Lost Her Sheep download and then matt & layered it as shown in the photos below. I didnt have to do any colouring on this so it was supposed to be a quick card but with all the embellishments on it, it took hours!!! Even with using my new glue gun (that I had for Christmas but only just opened it lol) it still took ages to decide where & how I was going to place all the different flowers that I wanted to add to give the image a "country cottage" feel to the whole card.

I will apologise now for the quality of the image but Im fast running out of printer ink  (on order now) & I had to rely on getting down to the bottom of the cartridges lol.

I hope you like both of the cards I have made for this challenge mid way reminder. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask away.
