Two Cards for Five Challenges

I had a lazy day with a bit of time to craft today, and I am posting two of the cards I made.  

This first card is for this week's RetroSketch #43, ColourQ #168, and Lawnscaping #48

Colors are Scarlet Jewel, SU Real Red, Spring Rain and Kraft.  The shine (which is a bit hard to see in this photo) is Glossy Accents on the owl eyes and the hearts, and Sakura glitter pen on the scarf.

My next card is for the combined challenge of CAS-ual Fridays #83 and 10 Minute Craft Dash #9.

I used my new Lil Inkers Snowflake Dies and some Dark Blue Shimmer paper, and completed this card in 8 minutes, 29 seconds.

Supplies Used:
Warm Winter Wishes
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn:  Winter Owl, Winter Fox, Belinda's Borders, Hero Arts Envelope
Paper:  PTI Kraft, White
Ink:  PTI Scarlet Jewel, Spring Rain, Kraft, SU Real Red
Other:  Spellbinders Label 8, Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Sakura Pen, Twine

Tis the Season

Other:  Lil Inkers Snowflake Dies, Rinestones
