Jingle Belles and Winter Wonderland

are the challenges I'm here tonight to add my submissions to.  The Belles are looking for non-Christmassy holiday cards, and anything goes all month at Winter Wonderland.  Here are my contributions:
 
 
 
The top card is modified from a Silhouette file.  I inked all the brown edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink, and I used Faded Jeans on all the flower parts.  The sentiment comes from a new (to me) set called "Christmas" from Cloud9 Design.  I stamped it in Faded Jeans also.  I really like how this turned out!  :)
 
The second card is made from a file by Bird found here.  LOVE this one!  It looks so nice in tonal colors!  I used Peacock Feathers ink to stamp the sentiment and color the flowers (and my fingers!)  The ribbon came from the dollar store.  At the last minute, I decided to add a string of beads around the sentiment oval...which was a tad bit tricky underneath the bow...but mission accomplished anyway!
 
Well, I'm gonna get these linked up, also adding this post to Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra!  Thanks for visiting and take care!
