Ismaki/CCT and Friday Sketchers challenges

I am so behind with the challenges again this week (no surprises there then). I managed to get a couple done yesterday.

The first one is for Ismaki sketch challenge and Cute Card Thursday Prety in Pink challenge (I'm trying not to combine them thereby getting more cards made - this works so well in theory lol). I forgot to glitter her wings before I took the photo so must remember to do it.

I have used a Whiff of Joy stamp - Melinda Holding Heart which I have coloured with distress inks and H2O's.
Basic Grey Blush papers
Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch
Prima flowers
Brads and spacers from stash
Flourishes are a Quickutz Revolution die


This card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge and is a fabulous sketch by Jacqueline. I've used the snowflake (which is cut from glittered card but is not sowing very well in the photo) as the second circle, I've used it this way efore and this it's so effective.
I've used a Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with distress inks and H2O's (really must use my Prismacolors again lol)
The snowflake is cut on a die I got off Ebay yonks ago - there is no makers name on it
Papers are DCWV - their new Xmas stack
Sentiment isa Studio G (I think - I've thrown the packaging away)


Thanks for looking,

  25. hey Bev!
    Let start with the first card.
    the colours are absolutely great. I love the tiny gold flower. You have incorporated the lace border in just the perfect place.
    second card: I really wanna know how you have incorporated the beads on top of the snowflake? with the help of brads?
    I can see the glittery white cardstock pretty well.
    I have always loved these snowflakes they look so beautiful!
