Two Cards for the New Year

 Today, I am sharing a couple of cards that I made for Stamp TV December Release challenges.
The top card was made for Donna's Challenge to make our own Pattern Paper. Using stamps from GKD Nana's Needleworks and Sentiments and Fanciful Tags, I stamped sentiments for a Thank You Card. Used the Knitting Basket ( colored with Copics and Markers) as a focus that was cut with Spellbinders dies. Ink was Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Rich Cocoa and Papers were White and Kraft CS.

The second challenge from Giovana was to create a card using stamped flowers. I stamped the rose from GKD's A Year of Flowers by Melanie using Memento Rich Cocoa on Ivory CS and coloring with Copics RV11,21,23. Cut this with Nesties Oval and Matted on Scallop Oval of Brown CS. Coordinated Pattern Paper from Authentique "Uncommon" Pad and vines punched with Martha Stewart Vine Trim Punch from ivory and brown CS. Finished with Pearl colored with Copics.
Assembled this card using a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches shown below. I will be entering this challenge found here.
Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate all your comments.
