Blue & silver Christmas

Pav's off work this week so I'm making the most of him being around to entertain our littlest monster, and getting lots of Christmas cards made! I've made 4 of this design just to try and get as much done as I can.

The image is an Elzybells stamp, coloured with promarkers, with a chalked sky background and sakura clear glitter pen on the falling snowflakes, and polar white flowersoft for snow. My circles are all cut with Nellie Snellen circle dies - my favourite toys at the moment! The papers are Doodlebug, layered onto mirri card, with some blue coredinations for the circles. The flower was cut with a sizzix die from mirri card, with a big gem centre. The wavy silver strip that I've used instead of ribbon, was from a pack of different coloured strips bought from a craft fair ages ago.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

And this one's a quick card for Sunday Sketch & Stamp. My mum wanted a card for my cousin's birthday so hopefully this one will do.
I've used a Riley moose (Hanna?) stamp, coloured with promarkers. The papers are Doodlebug, yellow cardstock is DCWV, sentiment is a download from Pink Petticoat. Added a couple of red rainbow drops to finish.
