CAS Summer Flower & a Sketch

Well we are now in Lockdown for another 6 weeks, with most businesses closed (except food, grog and medicine ) and a curfew from 8pm to 5am. So I'll plenty of time to make cards and binge on Netflix! 
I just hope that the restrictions will help bring the figures down. 

So here are a couple more cards I made today...
I originally stamped the images only in colours, but I wasn't happy so I went over the images again with the black outline, which really made them pop. 
Stamps: Altenew 'Totally Tropical', 'Parrot Paradise'

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-

My next card was inspired by the sketch at Christmas Card Throwdown

The bauble stamp is very old from a an Australian company no longer in existence. 
The dove stamp is from Kaisercraft and the sentiment die is from Penny Black. 
The bow die-cut was in my stash.

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-
