Sketch challenge cards

I took some "me time" today on the holiday to make some cards. These two are similar. I was having fun with this paper and my Sizzix machine so I just went with it and made two in the same theme.

The first one is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.



Stamp: Inkadinkado
Paper: DCWV Christmas glitter stack; Bazzill cardstock
Accents: Die cuts, brads, ribbon
Tools: Sizzix big shot, dies; circle punch


Next is a card that combines challenges. The layout is based on the sketch from Stamps and Smiles and I combined it with the Charisma Cardz challenge to use swirls and curls. Snowflakes make swirls, right? There are a couple of swirls on there too for added measure!



Stamps: Inkadinkado
Paper: DCWV Christmas Glitter stack
Accents: Snowflake dies, stickles, ribbon
Tools: Big Shot, Nestabilities
