Freshly made sketches challenge #200: a celebration

Freshly made sketches challenge #200: a celebration.

Congratulations ladies for a fabulous blog and 200 awesome challenges! 200 people...onwards to

I think in cardmaking when you start double guessing yourself, that's when things end up in the projectsbin and never finished...
I started with the marbled sea and boat card.
I made the marble patterned paper with shavingfoam and re-inkers.
the boat is watercolor paper diecut with Joy Crafts! die and the sentiment is also fron Joy Crafts!

I liked it, but then doubt crept it clean and fresh enough?
I don't know...
So made anther with the snowflakes on linnen paper.
attached the two color together with tape, then die cut snowflakes out of them and diecut extra snowflakes so I could offset the colors. then inlaid them and added the sentiment from Joy Crafts! the snowflakes are from Marianne design.

then the internet shut down and revisiting both this morning I wasn't sure why I was doubting myself lol...
Still entering the snowflakes one for the challenge as it's more like the sketch.
