One sketch, two cards

Good evening, I've had a lovely lazy day today with time to play, there's a lovely sketch this week at Sketch Saturday, so I decided to follow it to make a card...or two!
the sketch

card 1
card 2
The colouring medium for both of these cards was copics.  They were both made using scraps and snippets from my extensive stash of 'too good to throw away' left overs, not a new sheet of paper was used so I'm going over to play in the Snippets Playground.
Thanks for looking
Have a lovely evening!

Hi Chris! Two fabulous cards here - I especially love your wonderful colouring - on top of using snippets of course! Aha, I think you could be a pal of Kath - she who runs away at the sight of a butterfly?

So pleased you came to play with us in the Snippets Playground!
