A COUPLE OF CHALLENGE CARDS

I haven't done a lot of challenges other than at SCS and TGF but there are so many really fun ones around I thought I would give a few a try. I combined a few for the first card.

This first card uses the sketch from Jen Del Muro's SFYTT.


And color inspiration from Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #16


The image is Flapper Anya from The Greeting Farm and the paper is from Raspberry Road.


Next up is a frosty little card using acetate for Crazy 4 Challenges

The acetate is an overlay that I embossed some sparkly snowflakes on.

I left some space at the bottom in the snow for an as yet to be determined sentiment.

I found that the trick to embossing acetate without melting it is to move your heat source over the image in a rapid circular motion and to not get too close.

The image is Madelynn from The Greeting Farm, Snowflakes from The Angel Company and paper from The Digital Scrapbook Place.
Have a Great Weekend!
