OK, Here's the first card I did for this sketch:

I am so in love with the Basic Grey Wassail 6x6 pad! All of the paper on this card is from the Wassail pad.

I also used the BG Wassail buttons! I've never been big on buttons, but I saw that BG had Wassail buttons so decided to give them a try. I LOVE THEM!

I used a Crate Paper Blue Hill rub-on on the button.

The stamp is Catherine's Berry Wreath by Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet.
It is stamped in Adirondak Espresso and the berries are covered with glitter from a Pink Paislee Pixee Stix in Strawberry.

Here's my 2nd card:

Again, more BG Wassail paper and buttons!!

I used the Stampendous Wreath Angel stamp...LOVE this stamp!
(Don't worry, there are more on order!)

I colored her with copics and used a clear spica all over for some shimmer.
Her wings are covered with white fun flock!

And, I stamped 'joy' on the button using Black Stazon.
The 'joy' is from the Pink Cat Studio Christmas Kitty set...which is on sale this week!
All Pink Cat Studio is 15% off!
