PDD Friday - Simon Says & ABC Challenges

I have 2 cards to share today. The first is my Pezzy's Playgroup DT card. I am also entering it into the ABC Challenge this week, which is "E for Embossing".

I used a wonderful pine cone stamp and embossed it in gold, then I coloured the pine cones in to make them more obvious. I distressed all of my papers and the white flowers with Tea Dye. I just love these BG papers but have very little of them left, in fact I'm down to mere scraps :(

I have no clue where I got the stamped sentiment. I found a full sheet of them in my stash that I must have stamped at a crop..?!

Don't forget to check out the other DT members blogs as they are using the new Nestie Frame digi releases.

The second card I made is for the Simon Says Challenge. This week they want a colour combo of red & green. My card is predominantly red, but I added the corner sticker to get my green :)

Isn't that Santa image just fantastic!!! I do love BoBunny :) I coloured Santa's suit with distress inks (Aged Mahogany) and I distressed the image using Tea Dye. I then used the Heidi Swapp edge distresser on the edge of my dp. The beautiful lace trim is one I get in my local drapery store and the 'Believe' snap is by Tim Holtz

Have a wonderful weekend :)
