Birch Tree Challenge Cards

Happy Monday Everyone!
I am happy to say that I am still making Christmas cards...I even think of new ideas before sleep lol!

I made this card with the Birch Column Die from Simon Says Stamp (SSS):

This is inspired by the colors of the latest Color Throwdown Challenge (CTD423) :

I am entering this card into the CTD423, the SSS Flickr Challenge #60 and the current SSS Work It Wednesday Challenge. The Color Throwdown colors really brought a fun and playful element to this card. I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to add the color (#34, #36 & #51) and also sequins & beads from Pretty Pink Posh and Kennedy Grace Creations. The sentiment is from the Ornaments Stamp & Cut set (Hero Arts).

I then made another card with this gorgeous SSS Birch Column Die:

I absolutely love this card: the silver glitter paper combined with red accents is so striking! The background paper is from BoBunny and the frame is cut from the Fancy Frames Dies (Craftin Desert Divas). The sentiment is stamped with the SSS Schoolhouse Red ink pad. It is from the SSS Presents & Ornaments stamp set.

I think I may make Christmas cards even after the 25th - I'm running out of time and I still have so many ideas lol!

The warmest holiday wishes to all of you!
Thanks for coming by!
