2 challenge cards today and Blog Candy at Bev's!

Hello!

My children went back to school today after the half-term holiday so I have managed to make 2 challenge cards.

The first card is for the Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge which was a sketch by Jay Jay. When I started making the card I didn't think I would like the end result but I must say it turned out better than I expected. Sentiment reads "Merry Christmas" and the green semi-circle is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots but doesn't show up very well in the photo.


BP, Ribbon & Green brad = DCWV Christmas Wishes

Flowers = Prima with gems added


My second card is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme this week is "Get Sparkly/Bonfire". As I really want to get on with my Christmas cards I decided to go with the Get Sparkly theme. I decided to ink the edges of my card and papers and I quite like this effect. For a change I made a 5 x 7 size card. The snowflakes are sparkly and I have added glitter to the hedgies scarves.





BP = DCWV (I think)
