Two Quick CAS cards

On my work table I had these two small turquoise card blanks -
so two quick cards were in order.

I have been printing images with backgrounds included - so this fabulous silhouette
 (freebie from gecko galz)
was printed on a Dragons Lair background.
I then cut it out withan oval nesting die.
The SU sentiment from 'Warm Words' was stamped on another section of the background and also cut out with an oval.
The final touch was to add a little Jade Sea Detail Sparkle from Imagination Crafts.

I will link this card to Less Is More Week 260 Recipe

I then used some more of this background to die cut Tim Holtz 'Branch Tree'.
 This was the first layer on my next card.
I printed Bugaboo's Reindeer block on a Decosses Dynamite Doodles paper from 'Snowbiz'.
I added some colour to this with Promarkers - although I was not too happy with the result as the card I printed on appeared to be glossy!
Finally I added three snowflakes.

and I will link this card to that challenge.

I was very pleased to win some Bugaboo images in the Birthday Bash!!
I will also link this card to January Rudolph Days Challenge
Happy Crafting!
