Dare to Get Dirty Challenge - Post 9

Hello Friends & Followers!  So nice to have you back again to see more of my cards created for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on SCS.  Since the deadline is this evening, they will all be finished before midnight.  My first card allowed me to use my new-ish 'Glimpse Inside' set from Taylored Expressions along with all the CUTE coordinating dies like the arched window and the window accessories (and I got to COLOR - WOO HOO!)
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I wish I could remember who made that cute red woodgrain paper (Studio Calico perhaps?), I know the paper pieced wallpaper is from that Season's Greetings stack by Echo Park that I have been using so much lately.  I added some Queen & Co. brick red pearls as the tree's glass ornaments and add some sprigs using Martha Stewart's punch to the little window box.  I do like how this one came out.  I am also entering this card in the following additional challenges:
When I saw the patterned paper I used in the second card I have for you in this post I knew it would make a pretty card with Asela Hopkins' 'Pretty as a Peacock' set.

and I love the colors in it (it is really so vibrant IRL - I paired it with Eggplant Envy, Lucky Limeade, and Bermuda Bay) and I know I will be using this color combo again!  The sentiment and peacock were heat embossed with black EP and I sort of spotlighted the square with Bermuda bay.  I am also entering this card in Crafts and Me's Anything Goes challenge (I think it is just too pretty not to show off).
     Alright friends & followers - I have one more DTGD challenge cards post later this evening for you, so I hope you will revisit tonight or tomorrow to see them!

These are stunning! I wouldn't of thought of the color combination for the second card.

Love the fun little peek through the window ... I always love to go for evening walks during the holidays, so I can see all of the decorated trees in the windows ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.
