Sassy Cheryl's, CSAYL and a Card for Fun!

Good Evening,,,,,,,,about the only GOOD thing about having several herniated discs is that when they go out, you have a good excuse to sit on your butt and do nothing but make cards LOL.

Yep,,,,,two days of relaxation here,,,,,,,but I do believe I am on the mend :)

Today, I have a challenge entry for two challenges!

Sassy Cheryl's weekly challenge this week is "pretty papers",,,,,they want to see your cards with pretty papers!

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long wants to see your cards using the following picture for inspiration!

It was an easy combination!!!!!

Here's my card for both challenges!

I colored the Sassy Cheryl image with copics and prismacolors, cut it out with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments and then debossed it with a Tim Holtz sow flake embossing folder,,,,,,I then embossed white card stock with the same folder, and cut several more ornament shapes from several of my prettiest green papers,,,,,I also cut the star from the Sassy Cheryl image separately from the image with the smallest ornament die. I "hung" the ornaments on sparkly gold ribbon, pop dotted them up, and gave each ornament a gold bow.  Easy peasy and really pretty!

So run on over to Sassy Cheryl's and Christmas Stampin' All Year Long and load up your cards! You might win a prize

My second card is just for fun! I had this image in my computer and I've been meaning to do something with it for some time now,,,,,,,I cut the image out using spellbinders rectangles long and spellbinders scallopped rectangles long, added some cute die cuts, hand rolled roses, lace, velvet ribbon and a bow! It's a bit different than my normal "vintage" cards, but I think I like it!

I hope you enjoyed the cards, and thanks for looking!!!!!!
