Mermaid Anya Birthday Card

Good morning all.  I hope everyone is well.   I've been having a play with my Cricut explore and The Greeting Farm svg cut files so I thought I'd share my creation.

For this card I cut the Mermaid Anya svg file using the Cricut Explore and then stamped the  Mermaid Anya image on the cut out.  I lined up the stamp on the cut out with my
Stamp-a-majig, I then coloured the image with copics.

I'm not sure where the DP's are from, these were all offcuts in my paper stash and I thought they went quite well together.

The fish are cut from kraft card using a cuttlebug die.  I then coloured the fish using metallic rub on paste (which has been in my craft drawer for years and I've hardly ever used) and then covered them with glossy accents (doesn't really show on the photo). 

I then added pearls, my favourite embellishment, I think I manage to get pearls on every card I make.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - A Touch of Kraft
The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday - Favourite Embellishment

Thanks for stopping by.

I Heart Sweaters Anya Snowflake Card.

A very good evening to everyone.  I know it's August but is it too early to start thinking about Christmas cards?  I've had a couple of days off work and after taking my Brownie pack out for an exhausting day out yesterday, today was a day of relaxing so I spent some of it in my craft room and made a card just for fun, I wasn't planning a Christmas card, it just turned out that way.

For my card I have used:
The 6" snowflake card base is cut from The Range 300gsm white card using my Cricut Explore and an image from the Winter Lace collection.
The green snowflake is cut from a sheet from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Traditional Christmas paper pack.
The image is I Heart Sweaters Anya is from The Greeting Farm coloured with copics and cut with Spellbinder circle and scallop circle Nestabilities dies.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes for Christmas
STAMPlorations - Stamps & Die cuts
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

Not many embellishments I know but I don't think it needed them.....

(The inside of the card using a stamp from  Sizzix Framelits Die Set 658279 - 3 dies and 3 coordinating stamps, bought recently from Sizzix for only £3.00, which I thought was a bargain)

Thanks for stopping by.
