Two Christmas Cards

Hi all before I tell you about my cards can I thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments you have left, it is lovely that you take the time to visit me, it brings me so much joy.

Today I have two cards to show you the first one is for the following challenges:
For my card I have used a rubber stamp that I bought quite awhile ago from Funky Kits, I have coloured her with Copics, the papers are Basic Grey, I have added a red lame ribbon that sparkles beautifully when the light is on it, I topped it with green ribbon and bow, the flowers are from Wild Orchid I added a sentiment, pearls and crystal gems.  Below is a closer view of the image.


My second card is somewhat different and did not turn out as I expected, but I thought I might as well post it and enter a few challenges:

For my card I have followed the sketch by Carly, this is my first time entering this challenge, the papers are a mixture of Bearlymine and Papermania, the base card is an 8x8 white scalloped card, I have mounted the pink paper onto holographic silver mirri card which sparkles for sure.  I used the same mirri card for the small snowflakes and holly leaves that I placed around the image.  I used a punched butterfly double mounted with silver holographic mirri card and the pink paper, I added gems, die cut snowflakes and some pink pom poms, I added a white pom pom to Tilda's hat.  I coloured Tilda with Copics, the pink mount I cut using a grand caliber die cut, the sentiment is from LOTV.
Well that's it from me for now I will see you later hugs to all.
