Up, up and away!

This card was made using Crafter’s Companion stash that came with a recent Magazine kit.  I used 2 backing papers, 1 topper, 1 sentiment and some DoCrafts gems from my stash, which I chose because of their aurora borealis type colouring.  I also used them for the coal buttons on the Snowman.

Bike boy!

My son is going to a birthday party next week so I used a Kenny K image to make this card. The background paper is from Crate and the black mat is a Kanban diecut.  I used a sentiment from Hunkydory and coloured it with a Promarker to match the digistamp.
