Dare to Get Dirty Challenges - Post 8

Hello again!  I thought since I had a total of four projects to post this evening I would break it into two posts, make it easier to read or something (do you mind posts with a big string of cards?  Let me know!).  The first is actually a tag rather than a card, using There She Goes Clear Stamps' 'Warmest Wishes' stamp set and coordinating dies and some designer papers from Echo Park's 'Season's Greetings' stack (LOVE that collection!):
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I just love the rustic look of these colors and papers, so I thought the tiny wooden buttons would be the perfect accents for the mittens with a little twine here, little bling there.  I am entering this tag in the following additional challenges:
My second card uses Papertrey Ink's Heart-2-heart #6 collection:
I used the rays of sunshine cutting plate by Taylored Expressions' as a template for the sun's rays and sponged some soft sky ink at the edges of the clouds (I am still 'on cloud nine' myself after realizing I have cloud dies in my collection and no longer have to cut them out by hand, YIPPEE!).  I am entering this card in the following additional challenges:
     Thanks so much for stopping by again this evening!  I appreciate you taking the time to view my creations and read my ramblings.  Have a wonderful evening!

Gosh, both of these are terrific. Love the mittens complete with string, printed cuffs and button embellishments on your tag.
And your brighter skies card is adorable. Love the sponged background and the sun image just makes me smile. Great design!
