More WCMD - Unity Coloring/Pamela Young Sketch/Ellen Hutson Holiday Card

Couple more cards for World Cardmaking Day.

First off, is a card for the Unity coloring challenge as well as Pamela Young's sketch challenge.

I'm using the Life is a Verb Itty Bitty.  I colored the body of the wagon with colored pencils, and the wheels/handle with the blending pen.  I stayed pretty true to the sketch, and used some May Arts chevron twill, kraft buttons, and twine to embellish it.  The alphas are from Basic Grey.

I also finished designing the Christmas cards we're going to send out this year.  I'm sharing this one (of five) for Ellen Hutson's Holiday Card challenge.

It's really CAS. The stamp is from the Pear & Partridge cardmaking kit. It's stamped in Cocoa, and I used a sponge dauber to color the birds red. I didn't clean them off/mask them off so it's a more subtle color since it's a blend of the Cocoa/Cranberry.

One more day til the weekend!
