the first card i used
luscious dewfrost paper, bramble wreath stamp (E1276) ( how gorgeous and multi~useful is this!!!) memorybox red (christmas pack) , and memorybox snowflake gems ..and gems they are dontcha agree! i hand wrote meet me under the mistletoe on the stick and distressed it up with colorbox fluid chalk in chestnut roan. i also used my cricut and joys of the season cartridge ( birds and holly/mistletoe) the birds i colored withcolorbox fluid chalk in chestnut roan and red and dark brown. the leaves i used sour apples, olive pastel and dark green. i also added 3 red kaiserkraft pearls oh i also added just a iny bt of stickles tosome of the branches.. i couldnt capture the little bit of sparkle in the pic though :(

for card 2

i used the same stamp.. and the gorgeous spiceberry paper pack.
i added MB red and green jewels from the christmas pack. i also put a little touch of stickles on some of the branches. i also used my crict and joys of the season cartridge for the pinecones which i colored in with colorbox fluid chalk /dark brown and chestnut roan. . added a bit of twine and a button. i used jasmine cartridge for the corners. added some lace trimming and computer generated the words onto paper and glued them onto the stick. i think thats it :) hope you enjoyed and i wish good luck to everyone that enter but really i hope i win the contest :) thank for taking the time here :) xx shelly
