Rudolph Days and more PTI Challenge Entries

I'm still posting mostly on IG, but did want to share a few recent cards with you.  First is my entry for Rudolph Days.  
Most of my cards are one of a kind, but I do make all the same for hubby's cousins.  I've loved this Avery Elle Winter Wreath since I first saw it.  
Usually I make one layer cards for the cousins, but decided to add a mat this year.  Very simple, but I'm happy with how they turned out.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Next is my entry for PTI challenge to make a card with a little sparkle. I finally inked up the 2018 freebie stamp set called Your Beautiful Birthday. I thought it looked intimidating, but actually it's easy & fun to use!
The inks are Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Smokey Shadow, Weathervane, Lemon Tart & Bright Buttercup.  I heat embossed the words & sprinkle layer in JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle ep.  
The image was die cut with Shape Shifter's Circle 3 & the Smokey Shadow panel was dry embossed with an Echo Park folder.  I have tons of ribbon & found this one that was a perfect match.  The dots are Shimmer Pico Embellisher.  I'm also entering NBUS.

I had such fun with that stamp set, I decided to use it again for PTI challenge to add Rainstones to a card.  Luckily, I still have a few Darnell gave me the first time we met in person.  
This time I stamped the cake layers in Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice & Berry Sorbet on a Soft Stone panel.  The cake plate & candles were stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer, the words were stamped in Hero Arts Shimmer & I used a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen on the sprinkles.  
The white Pierced Feature Frames die cut was splattered with gray ink & attached with foam tape.  I do love the look of Rainstones for embellishing cards.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
