Only 17 more X-mas cards to go........

I am very excited I got 2 more Christmas cards finished and 3 challenges. This card was made using the sketch from Friday Sketchers. It was an awesome sketch bu Mumur! (Thanks)
I added snow along the edges to make it look like it was snowing but it is hard to see so I added a snowflake charm. That was for the challenge over at CCT. Which is snow + snowflakes. I just thought this image from PB was perfect!!

Paper: My Mind's Eye Be Merry
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: Beads ~ StampingBella, charm ~ Micheals, ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, flowers ~ Primas


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My second card is for the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar which is Blooming Marvelous. This was a great challenge as I love flowers. I finally got to use this image. I have to admit that this is the first image I colored before actually putting the card together! I colored it a month ago when it came out and it sat there. But it was nice as this card came together quite fast!!!

Papers: Basic Grey
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima, brads ~ Micheals, cuttlebug


Well thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone is having a great night and I hope to stop by and visit tonight while the girls are snuggled in bed!!

Beautiful cards, I love the papers you've used and what a fab interpretation of that sketch... i really struggled with it! I wish I had nearly finished my cards, think I might still be making them come Christmas Eve... each time I do a batch someone comes and says "ooh can I have those there so pretty" and me being me let them take them!
