YNS challenge entries

Saturday evening and I just finished up a couple of cards for the Your Next Stamp challenge which is to use a provided sketch. The prize up for grabs is the cutest stamp and matching die for a string of Christmas lights so I made two cards to up my chances!



I think I bought these images last year and never got around to using them so this was the perfect chance to ink them up. I used a couple of different paper pads and a corner punch to shape the end of my sentiment tag on the bottom one. Alright, almost time of bed for me. Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for my Paper Sundaes card!

Wow Amanda, these are both just adorable! I love your coloring. I love your little girl with her snowman. How cute is that? And the little ice skater. Well, that just rings of winter. Great job my friend. Love it! Good luck on winning. I am sure it will be hard for them to choose. I checked out the stamp and die set. Very very cool. Hugs, Lisa

Amanda, what a great way of using the organza ribbon. That bow is so pretty, and still soft, without taking over the card. I'll be copying that idea for sure. Love your coloring, and attention to details. Thanks for another inspirational card share!
