Two more for Christmas!

Good evening everyone.  Well there goes another weekend, Why do they go so quickly compared to Mondays that  drag on and on and on!

The miserable weather and dark mornings don't help though do they - bring back Summer I say!

I'm currently tucked up in my craft room at my desk adjacent to the radiator with large Baileys in hand and thought I'd post a couple of things I've made.  I have a whole long list of more to make though - including my dear Nan's 80th birthday card. 

Two more separate challenges.  Please scroll down for CAS-ual Fridays and ABC Challenge.

But first I thought I'd dig out those pink Christmas papers again that I've used before and make a really girly Christmas card, but in non-traditional colours.

The stamp was from the stamp fairy, and I coloured her in promarkers to match the card.  I used black card to matt and layer and a spellbinder die for the flourish.  I used 3 paper flowers and coloured them in promarkers to match the image, double tied a bow for behind, and used another die for the and flourish (I think this is a cheery Lynne one - but can't quite remember so please don't quote me on that!).  The sentiment was a wooden one, stamped with Versamark and embossed with heat it up black sparkle embossing powder and the card finished with a small amount of black stickles

This is to enter:
613 Avenue create Challenge #41 anything goes with layers
Sketch and Stash Challenge 123 - sketch (I have angled the layers but only slightly - hope this is ok..)
Christmas card challenges - Challenge #46 using pink

I  would like to enter the following card into
ABC challenge W is for words.
CAS-ual Fridays CCFC 117 - in stitches (on the ribbon)

 I die cut a circle, then drew feint lines in pencil so I could align the sentiments.  I them stamped (firstly in red) then in black.  The image is another stamp fairy one, coloured in promarkers.  I then stapled a ribbon with stitching on the side.
