A Two Card Monday

 Card #1 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Jingle Belles // #JB2401 ...A year round Christmas challenge!!  The Belles want to see wrapping paper...a cycle-up challenge!!  I had this fun two sided wrapping paper that was so much fun...all the boys had their gifts wrapped in the blue snowflake side and all the girls had their gifts wrapped in the snowman side.  Come to find out the two sides work get for cards...background in the blue snowflakes side and a oval cut out and focal point using the snowman side.  Perfect!!

Just Us Girls // #JUG709 ...A word challenge!!  SPARKLE!!  I added some sparkle to my snowman using Dazzling Diamonds ultra fine glitter and the two wooden snowflake embellishments are covered in sparkly glitter.  Oh...and card #2 has a bit of sparkle as well with my rhinestones!!

ABC Christmas // 10JAN2024 ...An alphabet challenge!!  A is for "anything Christmas" and B is for "berries"!!  I used both again for today's card.  The snowman is string a garland of berries and has some berries tucked into that top hat.  Of couse a snowman and snowflakes fit the "anything Christmas" perfectly.

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS618 ...A sketch challenge!!  I used my wave die...cut it apart...flipped in long ways to create the back drop called for in this sketch and then added my little fishes.  Seas the day, girlfriend!!

Color Hues // #TCH78 ...A color challenge!!  The duo of colors called for in this current challenge is light blue and navy.  A perfect color combo for an under the water sea theme.

Alphabet Challenge // 12JAN2024 ...An alphabet challenge!!  U is for Under!!  I went under the sea and created an under the water themed card.  Those that follow me know that I love all things nautical and beachy so it is no surprise that for an UNDER challenge that I chose the sea!!
