Two Cards

Challenges are about to close, so thought I'd post the 2 cards I made in one post.
First is my card for City Crafter Challenge Blog & One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  I stamped my old DeNami tree in white pigment ink & embossed with a very old powder that is white with silver sparkles.  The Stampendous! sentiment is white embossed.  I mixed embossing paste with Memento Northern Pine & used it with the SSS Falling Snow stencil.  

Next is my card for MFT Color Challenge & The Paper Players.  
Two sizes of MFT leaves are die cut from brown, orange & yellow cardstock scraps as close as I could get to the colors. I brushed them with clear Wink of Stella for a pretty shimmer. The MFT sentiment is white embossed on a blue panel--again, close as I have to the color. This is my first time to use the little PPP Marshmallow sequins--pretty sweet.

Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  10. I am a bit late due to the difference in time zones we live in. And I work full time; that's why I am here now. Not a matter of interest but only a matter of time. And your tree card is lovely! A fab take on our theme. And the leaf card is stunning with leafs in various colors. Thanks so much for being with us again at CCCB. Good to see you!
