A couple challenge cards

I had time to do the SCS color challenge and the SCS sketch challenge. In following with my personal challenge to focus on Christmas cards from here on out, I made a pink snowman card and a jolly ole Santa!!
This week's color challenge (CC188) was pink, black and white in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Kinda hard to make a Christmas card from that, but I thought Frosty would look cute with a pink scarf and hat -he still remains my favorite snowman image!! Frosty is colored with some Copic markers and the embossed BG has stickles all over it. The ribbon is from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts.

This week's sketch challenge was pretty tough for me. I have a hodge podge of circle cutting systems and did a combo of my Creative Memories and circle nesties to make this. Everything on this card is from Cosmo Cricket -that huge scrapbook pack I bought off of QVC some time ago. Love it when everything coordinates and you don't have to put much thought into it! The image is the Santa image from the Holiday Cheer kit from Unity Co. This santa is very cheerful and is really fun to color!
Gotta go make the boys lunch. BBL to add the card deets!


  1. super cute! Great job with both challenges. Love the brads on Frosty and the Merry on the semi-circle layer.

  2. These are just too cute. Frosty has to be my all time fave snow guy and he look surprisingly wonderful in pink! ~chris

  3. Wow! Michelle, I really love old Frosty and he looks really great in the Pink and Black! Santa is jus too cute! I really like the letters and the DP's you chose too!

  4. Michelle, this is so adorable, I didn't see it yesterday when I was making my comments, or at least I don't remember seeing it! I spent two hours last night trying to catch up . . . LOL

  5. Both cards are adorable!! I think you did a great job on the sketch challenge that Santa!!

  6. These cards are great. My favorite of the two is the snowman. Who woulda thought pink was Frosty's color? I'm thinking after seeing your stamp that it definitely is though!
