CARD: Dragonfly Garden

Today's card uses a "sneak peek" of the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set!  It will be in the January-June Catalog!  It's really pretty--love the dragonflies!

The design was inspired by two challenges:  the colors are brought to you by "The Spot", and the sketch by "Try Stampin' on Tuesday"

For the strips down the right side, I used the lines found in the So Inviting Stamp Set!  Fun, huh?!!  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink, then embossed with White Embossing Powder.

CARD: Snowflake Wishes

Good morning!  This card was designed for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge!  I've been thinking lately that it would be fun to be on a design team again--I used to be on several, a few years ago!  And then, this Design Team Call came through my blog feed!!  I thought--I think I'll go for it!  I love creating cards from sketches and color challenges!  We'll see what happens!  Keep your fingers crossed for me!
