LOTV and Colour Create Challenges!

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog today.  I have two cards to show you.  The first is for Colour Create. The color challenge is Green, grey, and white and the extra option is silver.  We are sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking.   I am not gonna lie, this was hard for me!!  In the end, I am ok with how it turned out.

My sweet friend Christine sent me this wonderful Hanglar image.  
Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Hanglar and LOTV Circle Sentiment
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  Nitwits - Simple Joys
Embellies:  Guipure Lace and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts,
rhinestones, and Polar White flower soft, sheer ribbon
Tools:  MS Pine Branch Punch, Magnolia Swirl Die, Scallop circle nestie

The rhinestone were added in place of holly to keep with the color scheme.


My next card is for the LOTV Challenge where the theme is A Few of My Favorite Things! We want to see your favorited stamps, papers, embellishments etc. on your card.

For my card I used my very favorite Christmas image called Angel Gabriel that can be found at the LOTV Store, and my favorite papers from Bo Bunny - Snowy Serenade

Speaking of Lili of the Valley....they are having a cool Christmas Candy giveaway.
You can find all the details HERE!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

Hugs, Dena
