Two pretty girls

It's another of those cute LOTV little fairies for my first card. The papers are Papercellar Victorian Burgundy which I picked up at Dunelm Mill a couple of weeks ago. I really like the soft vintage colour of these papers, which I punched using MS PATP punches. I added loads of glitter to the image, some Papermania sparkly organza ribbon and some lace, Prima flowers and pearls. Challenges
Papertake Fab sketch
CES Think pink
Paperplay Ribbon,lace and flowers
Secret Crafter Sparkle and shine

Another Christmas card for the second one using one of last year's SN images, coloured with PMs with lots of glitter flocking. Papers are Dovecraft. I used the MS snowflake border punch. I die cut a large poinsettia using the spellbinder die from some of the paper then added a glittered Marianne die cut and embossed poinsettia and some Sizzix cut holly leaves, some ribbon and a bow to finish.
