2 more today

Today I'll share those other two cards I made yesterday (and I event started a 5th last night!). But first, I wanted to thank my friend Lisa for this award! Hi Lisa{{waving}}!

The first card I'll share is for the My Favorite Things Ambassador Challenge # 1 to Bling It Out! I rewarded my recent watercolor success with the purchase of some Pearlescent watercolors. I covered this entire scene in them. That's a lot of sparkle for a $7 purchase! I also added the new rhinestones I won from LimeLight to her hand, the dogs collar, and a couple below the scene. The leash is some sparkley cording from Mike's. And don't forget the glitter pen bracelet!

This card will be donated to Dallas Baptist University for the card drive and FABULOUS blog candy Jen at I{heart}2Stamp is offering...I mean this is BIG!!! Check it out!

Stamps: My Favorite Things Gone to the Dogs, My Favorite Things Bundles of Bouquets
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Watercolor
Ink: Too many to list!
Accessories: Blender pen, Aqua painter, Pearlescent watercolors, rhinestones, cord from Mike's, glitter pen, Cricut Storybook

My second card is for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge - a sketch challenge. I was inspired by a Christmas Card my MIL received for that looked a lot like this. This was a pretty simple card for me: stamped the branches, embossed the ornies, assemble.

Paper: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Whisper White, Gold from Mike's
Ink: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Riding Hood Red
