Mixing two challenges today by taking the sketch from waltzingmouse sketch challenge116 and the colour from cr84fncolor challenge63 which is blues and browns a colour combo I love.
After putting a checked paper border I covered the cream card with cream spider web netting which is not very clear in the photographs but you can see it in the closeup photo.

Using the new Spellbinders dies Resplendent Rectangles for the central framing and also for the tabs at the side I stamped some sentiments with WMS Compact Family in vintage sepia Versafine ink.

One of the flowers are of cream lace while the others were created using Crealies die set Creative Flowers CL CF 21 and then added some flat backed beads in the centres.The foliage is using Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip and the patterened papers are by Scrapworks Papers Canvas Collection.

Hello friends and here we are with another christmas card design using traditional red and green with lots of glitter as well.
For the wrapping paper I stamped this using WMS "Very Vintage Christmas"and then glittered the edges of the leaves and the same design for the tag as well.

I then added red ribbon, red bakers twine and red dew drop embellishments to finish this card off.
The layout for this is over at waltzingmouse sketch challenge .

I will also be entering this into the challenge at 52christmas card throwdown for their Theme Challenge 9 "Gifts of the Season"

Short post today but thanks again for visiting.

This card today is using the sketch over at waltzingmouse sketch challenge.blogspot and a colour combo that I have used in the past pinks and teal.
I made use of a new set of stamps that I purchased recently which is  the "Teeny Trees" set from Waltzingmouse and with so many stamps in one set this is very good value.I also used some new Spellbinder die sets Foliage Two - Jewel Flowers and Flourishes - Grand Decorative Circles One - Back to Basics Tags.
Thanks again for stopping by and if you like what you see a comment would be most welcome.

The flower was created using Spellbinder dies "Aster Flower Topper" and "Bitty Blossoms" cut out in felt for the centre.Other dies used were "Creative Page Tags", "Back to Basic Tags" and "Labels Four". The sentiment was WMS "Teeny Trees"and other embellishments are fine wire mesh, metallic ink marker, twine and gems.
