Bah! Humbug! / SVCC

Card 1 for Bah Humbug

Card 2 for Susie & Vikki

Challenges :
Bah! Humbug! - Embossing

Elements :
Card 1
Embossing - main element is Lace Tree and the squiggles down the side are from Just My Type collection all by Cuttlebug
Pearls - The Blues collection from The Hobby House
Sentiment - from Christmas Greetings collection by Lili of the Valley

The main element has been coloured using Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  I'm a bit disappointed with the photo as the distressing IS a lot smoother in real life and doesn't look nearly so patchy.

Card 2
BP - Swirls from Christmas Toppers collection by Cuddly Buddly
Corners & Ribbon - from Christmas Toppers collection by Cuddly Buddly
Image & Sentiment - Sleigh Bells from Forever Friends Elements

Sorry, I don't have any stamps or digi images of reindeer so I hope this FF deco will qualify!

I love that tree, you have reminded me I need to do my entry for Bah Humbug as well. The inking looks good to me I don't know why you are worrying.
Love your little reindeer, S&V didn't say it had to be a stamp so I think it qualifies.
Thank you for taking part in Susie & Vikki's Christmas Challenge
