ODBDSLC81 Christmas Rose and C4C110 Merry Christmas

Happy weekend everyone!

I have two cards for you....first is this weeks ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC81. Chris has challenged us to add at least 3 different shapes on our card.



I chose to add square, rectangle and circle shapes. The beautiful image is from this month new released Christmas Rose Set. I inked the image in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ Y08, Y21, R14, R17, YG11, G21and Colorless Blender. The DP is from the BasicGrey Nordic Holiday Collection. I added a circled doily behind the image and embellished the card with some SU Striped Ribbon, matching SU Botton with some Red Sparkly String, Dazzling Diamond Glitter,  a Scalloped Border on the side and the punched out sentiment with the Silver Pearls.

As always, please make sure to check out my ODBD sisters for their ideas ~ SabrinaFrancie, LoriPatChris and our October Guest Designer Sue Worthington.

My second card is for this weeks Crazy for Challenges ~ C4C110. The challenge this week is to create a *ONE LAYER CARD*. Only exception is cutting out an images and/or adding one Die Cut embellishment.



I again used a beautiful ODBD Christmas Set called Worship the Lord. I inked it in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ R14, YG11, G21, YG91. As you can tell I added lots of sparkles and a Red SU Ribbon...voila.

Please make sure to swing by the C4C Blog to see all the beautiful CAS designs the *Crazies* have created.

Have fun playing along and enjoy your weekend! Thank you for stopping by today.....

Silke! - you sure spent your week making some incredible cards!

This Christmas Rose layered it up on the doily with that great DP and striped ribbon is stunning - there is that great "button bow" too - love that!!
Your old fashioned Church in the woods is the perfect example of the ultimate in CAS cards.
Both beautiful and charming!!
