I just love coloring this little girl from Gina K. Designs' 'Warm & Cozy Christmas' with my Copic markers. The patterned paper is from American Crafts' 'Merrymint' collection (which I really love!) and since we could not use any embellishments that were not made of paper, I punched two snowflakes from a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and two 1/4" circles for their centers since I could not use bling or buttons. In addition to these challenges, this card also fulfills the requirements of this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge - Get in Shape! - to incorporate at lease 3 shapes into a card, mine include circles, ovals or ellipses, rectangles and snowflakes.
My second card was for HYCCT1112 - Brave Heart to make a card with at least one heart on it. I decided to use the Repeat Impressions' What If Wednesday Sketch 0511 to make this card:
When I was making it I had Stamp TV's Free-for-All Friday challenge to make an anniversary card in mind, but it seems that challenge has been changed, but that is the reason for the masculine feel to this card - I thought it would be a good masculine anniversary card for a man to give his wife for their anniversary. This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- Papertake Weekly Challenge - Get In Shape - to incorporate at least three different shapes into your card - I used ovals or ellipses, hearts, rectangle (card base) and circles (the buttons), and
- Sweet Stampin' Challenge - to make a masculine card.
Thanks for stopping by! I will have more for your viewing pleasure tomorrow. Cheers!
