Just Because It's Green Christmas

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Just a quick post to share with you two new cards I made for for Merry Monday Challenge #116 and Mojo Monday 353.
The first challenge dedicated to Christmas cards announced Green and White theme this week:

I decided to skip traditionally green New Year Tree and branches and use the elements from the inspirational picture - hanging white stars. Here is my card:

To add some vividness I heat embossed stars with silver and die cut one star from a silver glitter paper

The second challenge suggested this sketch:

Shari Carroll inspired my second card. I stepped out of my comfort zone and made a card with KaiserCraft patterned paper. And here is my card for Mojo Monday 353:

I just loved the idea of clear embossing and rubbing in some colour over to accentuate the sentiment. The original demonstration by Shari can be found here.

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your weekend!
