In a Holiday mood

I'm running late with posting lately, but it was one hectic day... it's almost midnight, and I've just finished the cards that I started making this morning... being so fast thanks to my gorgeous little newborn :P
The first one was designed for two challenges that occur at the same place, which is a recently found blog - Flourishes Newsletter. This is another one to host some extremely talented Design Team, not to mention that the stamps they're promoting are exactly my type! I sooo wish I could play with some of them... :)
Anyway, as I mentioned, they hold two challenges at the moment, one being a sketch, and the other one requiring some sparkle added to the project - and my goodness, I'd rarely drool over the prize as much as I do for this one, for they're giving out 6 brand new stamp sets!!! =P
Here's my card that uses "sketch C" and features some glitter (on Santa's beard, mustache & hat) - it's not much in comparison with the stunning samples from the DT members, but I'm sure it will do:


Since I also wanted to play with the current Mercy's sketch today, I decided that I add glittery bits to this one too. Here's my second card:


I love the way it turned out, especially that I drew the image myself (the stamp certainly exists, but surprise surprise... I don't own it :D ) I then coloured it with watercolour pencils, but have not blended them, since I liked the rough effect. The glitter is added to the snow & the snowflakes in the air.
I chose the colours from the Color Throwdown 64, which are baja breeze, chocolate and sahara sand. The last one turned out more like beige on the photo, and it's because I took the picture in the yellowy lamp light, that warmed up the colours.

Thanks for stopping by!
