Friday's challenge cards!

This is a card I made for the challenge to make a buckle card. I have never made a buckle card before and I tnink it turned out well. I have CASED myself, which is naughty, lol. But I just thought a buckle card really lent itself to this design. Everything is embossed in either black or white embossing powder. It looks really striking IRL, except that I used black cardstock with a texture on it and so the white embossing looks a little patchy in places, lol.

I'm really proud of this card, the only cardstock I used is white and I sponged or stamped all the color you see. It ended up looking quite effective I think. I used Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme ink and the sets I used are Linen, Print Pattern, Snow Flurries, Riveted and Glad Tidings.
I love the VSN challenges because they make you think outside the box and be creative!

Finally, I did this card for a Happy New Year card. I called it What Was I thinking? And what was I thinking, lol? It is sooooo bright, but I also think it is quite cute! I just love that Christmas wire set by Stampendous, it looks so gorgeous when you emboss it.

Now I need to get my vitamins to start on tonight's challenges, lol!
