Aqua and pink twosome


This is my second post today. Scroll down for some Humphrey samples. Thank you so much for your good wishes. I'm so sorry that so many of you have suffered, or do suffer from a similar problem. I sympathise with you all.

Tow cards here with similar colour schemes. The top card is a WOJ image, which although not a Christmas image always looks so pretty on Christmas cards. The papers are Dovecraft. I used a Sizzix star border punch and a Sizix corner die.  Flowers are Wild Orchid with punched leaves. Lots of glitter on the image.

Challenges:
Whiff of Joy Aqua, pink and cream
Sweet sketch Wednesday
Passion for Promarkers 2s (2 papers, pieces of ribbon, corners)
A spoonfull of sugar Things with wings
Crafts 4 Eternity Ribbon, flower, bling (Hope the glitter is enough bling)
Papertake Pastel colours


My second card features Phoebe, a cute digi from Pink Gem. Papers are Me to You and I used a new Papermania embossing folder. Wild Orchid flowers again, with a Sizzix cut corner swirl and pearls.

Challenges:

Willow Sketchie Great sketch
A Gem of a Challenge Aqua, pink and lemon
Digital Tuesday Texture

Hi Marianne, both of your cards are adorable. I especially love the first one. The Christmas Angel is so cute. Love the added glitter to her wings and the beautiful little flowers. Thanks for sharing your card with us.
