Two-fer Wednesday!

I love when I can make two different cards with the same design and the same image! Above is a birthday card I made for my sweet hubby. He is now officially two years older than I. In April, I celebrate my own birthday and we go back to his being only one year older (hey, gotta take it when it's there). LOL
I used a gorgeous image from Art by Miran called "Winter Sofia." Since I adore the color teal, I drenched my card in that color, using Copics to color up Sofia, and papers to enhance the tone. I added a bit of shimmer with Stickles. I'm entering my card into the Art by Miran Challenge blog, where every challenge is Anything Goes, my fave kind of challenge! Check out the inspiration there, and go play!
My second card is almost identical, with just a tweak of coloring, and a little less sparkle. Don't you love the lace I used? I got lucky at this summer's rummage sale and found a small box of various laces. This card is for the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge blog. It's a progressive challenge with prizes for participating each month. I'm a little behind, as this month is past the midway mark, but better late than never!
Other Challenges I am entering:
Fab & Gunky Challenges - Buttons! (my snowflakes are buttons w/the hanks cut off)
Frilly & Funky Challenges - Winter
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - All Wrapped Up
Scrapper's Delights Challenges - Favorite Colors (mmm, teal & pink!)
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenges - Something Old, Something New (old lace, new image)
