Let's Get Stamping on Craft Bubble 31st October

Over in our group Let's Get Stamping on Craft Bubble we've got Kathy as our GDT. She had to design her own sketch, email it to the rest of the DT, the DT sent pics of their cards to her and she had to upload them this morning along with her sketch and card, for this weeks challenge. Here's Kathy's lovely sketch.
And my card. I didn't realise till I'd send Kathy my card, but I've missed a bit off.....
I used an Anya image, coloured with ProMarkers. The die cuts I got from Susie at Die Cut Dreams. The snowflakes are made with a sizzix die.A close up of the snowflake.

Silver Baubles

I bought this cuttlebug die last year and never used it. So this year I thought I'd give it a go. After cutting the baubles out, I than ran them through various CB Embossing folders and attached them to the card with foam pads, I think it would've been better if I'd used silicone then I could've shaped them, will do that next time. Then added some silver cord to finish of, what do you think?

Christmas Card

Here's a Christmas card I finished yesterday, it's not for any challenge, just another one to add to the pile. I'm not sure whether I like it or not really, but thought I'll show it to see what you think.The flowers are a 4 petal stamp which I stamped up and embossed with gold EP, then cut out and stuck together.

Passion for ProMarkers

This weeks challenge on PfP was to use any colours and to follow a recipe which is - 3 different shapes, 2 papers and 1 ribbon.
Here's my card.The colours I used were meadow green, apple green, lilac and lavender, blossom and rose pink, and ivory and blush. The papers are from Pink Petticoat. I added glitter to the furry bits on her hat and also a little bit on the tree. I used a sukura clear sparkle pen for the ribbon and the hearts on the tree.
On one layer of the snowflake I added Twinklet Diamond Dust.
