CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Non Traditional Colors and more NBUS stuff

Grab our badge to display on your blog.

 Hello and thanks for stopping by.

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards that I made.  Both of them feature a brand new (to me) Snowflake Die set that I recently bought.

 They are both going into the challenges above. Well NBUS you can only submit one card per link and since I've already posted the first card for that I'll just go with the 2nd one as a bonus card.

The NBUS #20 Challenge. 

and the CAS Christmas - Non-traditional Colors challenge.

  1. Two wonderful snowflake cards. The gold is so pretty against the monochromatic grays. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas.

  2. These are both wonderful. Love the snowflake. I think the first one would have to be my favorite. I'm a huge fan of buffalo check.

  3. They're both really pretty and I like the colors

  4. Two beautiful cards but that first is a doozy! Love the non-traditional colors you chose and the paper is just gorgeous, Ida

  5. Ohhh, I love the colors on your first card, and the snowflakes on buffalo plaid -- wow! Great designs on both cards, plus cool nontraditional colors. What fun!

  6. Love those shiny snowflakes. ♥ Sue Kment

  7. Oops his publish before I mentioned the pretty colors you used on the second card. Kind of country pastels! Pretty! ♥ Sue K

  8. lovely cards...I'm partial to the plaid though.

  10. Both are beautiful, Ida. I really love the neutrals with gold accents in the first card. The snowflake dies are so pretty!

  11. What beautiful cards! I especially like the plaid one. The gold snowflakes look so elegant against that color background. TFS Kathy A at myasperations.blogspot.com
