Two Cards Today.........very late!!

Another wet day here in Sydney so I got to play!!

During the Gina K release party there were a couple of card challenges so I thought I'd have a go. Cathy challenged us to make a one layer card so I've played with my Cuttlebug and the Swiss dots embossing folder after scoring a frame on PL GKD card. This was the fiddly bit... (wish I had a ScorePal !!!) once this was done I stamped the image from Autumn Blessing by Theresa Momber for GKD and coloured it with my Copics. The ribbon was added down one side and I made an envelope and attached this with the silver star for a simple embellishment.

The second card was for Lee's challenge which was a colour challenge. Red, Gold and Green where her choice of colours and I should say I've had the Boy George song on my brain ever since so thanks Lee!!!!
I stamped Melanie Inspiration Mosaic onto Apple Green card stock stamped the sentiment, from the same set, in black then clear embossed it. Two panels were covered with scraps of Basic Grey Wassail attached to some gold card.
The image is from Rupa Shevde's 'With This Ring' for GKD stamped and coloured with a mixture of crayons with baby oil and Copics. For the wrap around the stems I've 'sewn' gold thread. The image is cut with a Spellbinder die that I altered slightly to fit and attached to more gold card. This was attached to the mosaic with foam tabs. To finish I added the red gems then attached the mosaic to a panel of red card which was attached to the card base.

Sue, These cards are beautiful! How did you do the Swiss Dot embossing with out having it in the middle? That extra envelope was brilliant!. You are so talented. I love all your cards.
I have a ScorePal and love it. I forgot that I could use it to emboss. I have to try that today. I couldn't stay up for the whole party. Can you tell me where I go to see the challenges? I just love STV challenges.

Both cards are so beautiful Sue. Your coloring is always perfect. You did a beautiful job with the Cuttlebug embossing around the edges.
