Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Challenge

http://www.christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/ this week there is another fab sketch to follow. I enjoyed making these two cards.

Christmas
I used a pb stamp and coloured her with twinks. The papers are basic grey and I used a holly border punch on one of the backing strips.

Birthday


I used a ff stamp and coloured it wth promarkers, I cut around it using a nestie and added some stickles to the edges. I placed this on a sizzix frame and added some glitter dots to each scallop. I used the swiss dots folder for the strips and added some ribbon. The flowers are prima and I added some pearls to their centres.

Thanks for all your advice on the inks for promarkers!.x

Love them both! Gorgeous cards!
The stamp on the Christmas card is so cute and sweet and you've coloured it just great.
I love how you used the red and black on blue, in your birthday card - it looks fantastic and I would have never thought they'd go well together. Well done! :)

Thank you for taking up the challenge and being with us this week at JCBC. :)

Hygs,
