Release Party Challenge Cards

During SNSS's recent November release party, there were 3 challenges issued and I found time to finish them all. (Yay!) First up is Taylor's sketch challenge SNSSNOV11RP01. I used some vintage cream cardstock and a scrap of DP, along with a felt snowflake, embossing folder, and some Geo Sparkler stickers for this one.
This card was done for Holly's SNSSNOV11RP02 monochromatic challenge. I used the basic Rhubarb digi image and scraps of pink card stock and dp. I used labels eighteen dies for the image and added a tiny tag with a small pink gemstone, and of course a tiny white satin bow.
And this flowercake digi image was given as a freebie to all who attended the release party. This card was made for Monika's SNSSNOV11RP03 challenge to use 2 dies or punches. I used 2 dies and a punch for this, along with some Viva Decor pearls and glossy accents on the cake image. The dp is by Recollections and the green card stock and ribbon is PTI. The sentiment was computer generated and the embossing was done with a TH/Sizzix damask ef.
That's about it for me today, so thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Carol, All three of these cards are beautiful each in it's own way. You've colored the cake so good that I just went to get a fork so I could dig in. LOL. The baby card is so precious. Love that paper with Pink Rhubarb.
Your first card is quite elegant. I love just a touch of the snowflake embossing and that paper is just pretty as a picture. Love the greeting also and the gems on the greeting tying in with the gem in the center of the snowflake. You are so good at the fine little details which is what makes your cards stand out above most. I like that layout a lot so I think I'll have to CASE that. I hope you don't get tired of me CASing your works or art. Enjoy the weekend. Talk Soon

Three wonderful cards. I especially love the touch of texture with the embossed snowflakes on the first card... very elegant. The second card is so sweet and the third is beautifully and delicately colored.

Beautiful cards, girlie! I think the first one is my fav...the colors and texture is so striking!

...sorry I haven't been by in a while. With the power outage and then a bunch of running around last weekend, I haven't blog hopped in over a week. Yikes!
