Two more cards

These mice always make me think of Debby as she loves them and makes such fabulous cards with them. I used the lovely sketch at Sketch Saturday. Papers are Papermania Hampstead, sentiment is Craftwork cards. I added some corners from Lakeland, oh I miss Lakeland stocking craft materials.

I know, it's another Christmas card but when I saw that Anyone for Anya had a Christmas in August challenge I was so pleased to use this image which hasn't been out since last Winter. Papers are DCWV Rose tinted Christmas. I used the same papers for the flowers. The large flower was made using Nestie blossoms with a large brad. I used an MS Cosmos and Xcut flower punches along with an MS fern punch and gems for the other flowers.
Other challenges
The Corrosive Challenge and Sunday sketch and stamp Both have a very similar sketch
Craftalicious Make your own flowers
Fussy and fancy Pink and black
