Boats and Blooms

I was very lucky recently to win some surprise candy from Simon Says Stamp and this lovely nautical DP was part of my package :)
I've used an oldie sailboat from High Hopes and a load of dies .... Lawn Fawn clouds, Simon Says Stamp sentiment, not sure where my wiggly line die is from.
Boat coloured with watercolours, Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the sun on the sail, and clear gloss to the darker cloud on the sail.
Red and blue sequins and some clear bling to finish.

My second card uses these lovely flowers from Power Poppy.   coloured with watercolour pencils - Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the blooms and clear gloss to the flower centres.
White photo frame popped up on dimensionals.
Doodled border.  Green pearls from stash.
