A fairy and another sneak peek

Before I use the stamp of this sweet LOTV fairy I thought I would use the last of the squares of this image. The challenge at CES is no DPs. So setting all those beautiful papers aside I used card to match the colours of the image and embossed with flowers. My fave raffia lace has been out again along with some ribbon I picked up in Michaels. Flowers are Prima with some more of those sweetie brads, 1 glittery and 1 velvet, and some punched fern leaves. I would also like to enter this into the Bingo challenge at Simon Says. My card meets the requirements of 3 lines, brads, flowers, ribbon; lace, flowers, embossing; punch, embossing, ribbon.

The second card is a tri shutter and is another sneak peek from Crafter's Companion Appley Dapply CD and stamp set. I used the 2 guinea pig images and the sentiment which reads All dressed up with places to go. I added a doodle and used a Nestie die cut. Papers are all from the CD. I kept the embellies simple as this would make a great male card. I just added some punched and glittered foam stars.

I would like to enter this into the challenge of anything but a square at Stamptacular, a shaped card at The Creative Cottage and cuddly at Totally Gorjuss.
