Cute Card Thursday 138

Anything Goes is the theme for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge.  I cut out a template using a Nestibilities die and shaded the middle of the card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and a foam applicator.  The heart swirl stamp is from Hero Arts and the swirly butterfly is an Inkadinkadoo stamp.  The sentiment is from Elzybells.

Christmas Shopping

I made this card using a Lili of the Valley stamp.  I only used part of the stamp - I missed off the bit with the dog!  The sentiment tag is from Pink Gem.  The snowflakes are cut with an  X-Cut punch and the hot water bottle is from Elzybells.  The stamp is coloured with ProMarkers and the glitter is Stickles.
