A Couple of Challenges

Happy Sunday everyone. Just popping in to post some cards I created for a few challenges.

My first card is a Christmas card. I used Altnew's "Brilliant Baubles" stamp and die set, as well as Stampin Up!'s "Christmas Pines."


This weeks Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #412 and The Card Concept #124 were my inspiration.


Can you tell how the ornaments on this card were inspired by the photo from the Card Concept?


I loved the blue and silver color scheme and had fun using it on this card.


For my second card, I created a card using my favorite Hello Bluebird set "Frosty Friend's."


I used a sketch from last month and this weeks Just Us Girls Challenge #515 as my inspiration. I loved the snowy scene on the inspiration photo!!


I used a piece of Basic Grey pattern paper in the back. I have been hoarding this paper for YEARS but think I need to start using it. I have so much paper!!


I covered the tree with some Nuvo clear glitter and some added some Studio Katia pearls.


My last card I created for my niece's birthday back in October. I had SO MUCH fun making this card. I used the MFT sneaker die with the paper I used to wrap her gift in.


Of course I am not sure where the sentiment is from as they are from a bunch I stamped and cut out a while ago.


I was going to use little grommets that I had but wound up using the die cuts. I couldn't find the grommets-which if you saw my room, would not surprise you. It is a MESS!!


I am going to enter this into Seize the Birthday Challenge #179-no topping and Time Out Challenges #149-Celebrations.


Well that is all from me tonight. I need to get to bed because I have a very long day tomorrow. Charlotte is also coming home and I cannot wait!!

Two delicious, festive and fabulous Christmas cards, Nora ... one elegant and stylish, the other fun and so sweet! The floral pp sneakers on your niece's card are downright cute ... what a brilliant idea to use the same paper as the gift wrap for them ... they really do make such a wonderful statement! She must've loved them! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

What a gorgeous group of cards today, Nora. I love them all. Those sneakers made from wrapping paper are especially fun, and make a wonderful card to match your gift. Actually, I wouldn't mind have sneakers just like them to wear. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.
