World Card Making Day: Christmas!

Hello there...we celebrated Marcel's birthday this morning with his friends and cousins...and after we got home, I had lots of time in the craft room.  Pat is studying for his real estate appraisal license and the boys were all playing.  Perfect for me.  So I decided to play along with two different challenges.  First up is the Verve World Card Making Sketch Challenge.  I don't normally make cards with all neutral colors, but I love the way this turned out.  What do you think?  

And...then I went a completely different style (more my typically style you'll see here..) and played along with the PaperSmooches WCMD and Operation Write Home Challenge.  Kim gave us an option for the challenge and I decided to go with a one layer card.  Which one do you like best?  

I hope you are having a fabulous World Card Making Day!

  2. I can't choose either. I love the classy, neutral combo in your first card. The second is fun and crisp. Two winners in my book!
