2 Sketches4You Old Fashioned Christmas and a flower card!

Good morning everyone! It seems a while since I have posted, but it is really just a few days! I have missed having something new to post, but I got busy yesterday after some household chores and gardening were taken care of.
I saw this sketch here on the 2SketchesforYou blog and thought this would be a great foundation for this JustRite stamp from the Old Fashioned Christmas set as the focal point. The sleigh was stamped, coloured and cut/embossed with a classic circle Nestability and I used foam to pop up over the textured Bazzill beautiful cranberry colour card stock in the blossom shape. The larger circle was stamped separately and coloured/ cut/ embossed in the same manner and popped up on a larger blossom shape in a pretty black K and Co. print. This black and white dp is probably my favourite B/W ever! I picked up the cranberry coloured classic dp last week at Archiver's, but in my haste to get the card together, I used the portion where the company name is on the back on one of the panels on the card, so I really don't know what company it is. The panels are on a Bazzill panel. The card base is Stampin' Up Mellow Moss. The corner treatment is a very old punch that I have and it makes scalloped photo corners that come out embossed to fold over the back of the corner perfectly! On these two corners, I added a portion of another stamped and colored holly and berry border and carefully cut out those tiny pieces.

My next card was created just for fun with this beautiful Cosmo Cricket Everafter
patterned paper and the detailed Flourishes daisy/echinacaea flower from a year in Flowers. I coloured with my Copic markers and cut/embossed the layered ovals. I used a length of satin ribbon under the lace border and also created a border from the Vintage Cream PTI cs with a MS arches border punch. I have some charms in my stash of stuff and really need to start using them, so I added this bronze medallion and placed an orange rhinestone in the center, to match the ones on the sentiment and the MS punched butterfly.
That is it for now. Have a great day and thanks for stopping in!
