A couple of cards

Here is my final contribution to the colour challenge at CAS Christmas.

What a lovely challenge to celebrate their 3rd Birthday. Congratulations girls!
For this card I used a piece of DP for the gnome's clothes, I used an embossing folder to add some texture to his beard, it was part of a damask design I believe and I added a little interest to the bottom panel by heat embossing a French Script stamp in WOW Opaque white EP. The dies and sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp.
I often use embossing folders to add interest to die-cuts.

Anything Christmas Goes

Here is another card for the inchie challenge at AAA Cards
I wasn't sure if I preferred it with or without a sentiment
Here it is with a sentiment. It's for some friends who have just moved house. I guess that as the challenge says One Inchie, the one without the sentiment is closer to the mark, however adding the sentiment does make the card a little more appropriate for the recipients!
The little bird house comes from a long line of houses on an Artemio stamp, which I masked with tape before inking, so as to have just one!
An inch looks very small doesn't it!
