The first one was this week's Friday Sketchers,
and the second one is Sketch Saturday.
For both cards I stamped the Hero Arts image using Versamark and embossed with silver pearl embossing powder. I also embossed a sentiment by Stamps Away in the same way. For both cards I matted my image and sentiment onto silver holographic mirri card cut with my nesties, and layered onto torn printed pearlised vellum by Papermania and dark blue pearlised background paper by Reminisce. I decorated the images (and second card vellum) with Papermania gemstones. On the first card I also cut a snowflake from vellum with my Cuttlbug, and I decorated the second card wtih two Dovecraft snowflake brads.
That's all for now .. hope you are all getting your Christmas preparations done ... I'm off to do some more chores now LOL!
Update: seeing as it's so near Christmas and we're all as busy as bees, I'd like to enter this into a challenge that only popped up one day after I posted the card ... namely PTW which this week is monochromatic... well I hope the cards above are self-explanatory on that score LOL! I rarely do mono cards, esp. for Christmas, so thought this was too good to miss :-)
