Sparkle and Shine Green Challenge

The new Sparkle and Shine Challenge is to use the color green.  It is sponsored by Winnie and Walter.

I've made two cards that will satisfy this challenge.  The first was also to be entered into CHNC's Christmas challenge, but unfortunately our internet was down for awhile and I missed the deadline.  (It was to use the letter "P", and my card has a pocket on the front.)
I used PPP's pocket border die, stitched duo 3, and sequins;  Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangles; Heartfelt Creations stamp and die set colored with copics and stickles on the berries; old sentiment stamp (not sure where it is from) on the tag; patterned vellum; cardstock from stash.

I've included a few photos to show some of the details.  The vellum's pattern reminded me of snow, so I added it for some extra interest.

The second card is a birthday card for my grandson.  It is more of  teal than green, but I didn't have green ombre inks and he likes blues more than greens.  
I used Technique Tuesday's candle stamp to make the background and added a layer of vellum so the gold sentiment (Simon Says Stamp) would show up better.  I also used Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle dies  and Pretty Pink Posh gold star sequins.
Here's the result:

Sparkle and Shine challenge 13

This tag is for the Sparkle and Shine challenge sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh.  Since it is challenge #13 and Halloween is right around the corner, I decided to do a Halloween tag.


This is a shaker card using Mama Elephant's Tags A Lot die with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle cut out of the middle (I used black mirror cardstock) and a scrap piece of transparency for the window.  The tag (stitched labels 1) and star sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and the witch chipboard is from a prize pack I won years ago that I inked with black soot distress ink.  The sky background was inked using several Tim Holtz distress ink colors, as was the tag.   A little twine from the stash and a black heat embossed Unity Stamp Itty Bitty sentiment (Witching Hour) finished it off.
