Red and Green

This week over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is 'Red and Green'.  We have two wonderful sponsors Mari Ko Creations and Bugaboo Stamps.  I chose to play with one image from both sponsors.

Using the Mari Ko image called Snowball Snowman I used some cookie cutter dies, layered them a few tiems red, green and white layers, added a snowflake border die and a snowflake punch with some gems.  I colored the snowman using Gel Pens.  I added some Stickles on his hat and on the snow and some Glossy Accents on his eyes and buttons.  I used the Stickles to write the word snow in the sentiment.

entered into the following challenges:
Glitter n Sparkle  (up to 3 entries) Traditional Christmas

For my second card I decided to do a Birthday Card.  I used the 'Fancy Rose Vase' image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I kept this fairly simple really, just added a lot of layers.  I colored the rose with glitter gel pens and added some Glossy Accents in the vase to make it look like water was in it.  I added a bow as my 'accent'.
