Long tall Santa

For this card I've used the sketch for Wild flower Wednesday 23, lengthening it for a DL card:

The base card is a shiny black, covered with DCWV papers. I used one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Santa collage, stamped with versafine onyx black and heat embosssed with black detail. The chipboard candy cane is also DCWV.

Why does the candy cane and the ribbon look red on here when irl it's hot pink?

Peace on earth

This is for the sketch on the Pixie cottage for challenge 27, with the added option of 'triple play': 'which means we'd like to see something on your project 3 times! ' - hence the three stars - I punched larger stars from the gold mirror card and the smaller stars from the swirly foiled card.

The base card is gold stardream. I stamped 'peace on earth'(Personal Impressions) - one I bought in Eastbourne - (with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold) straight on to a piece of swirly foiled card that had a gap that was just right - a piece left over from a kit from last year (apart from the base card, everything else is from my scrap box - still trying to stick to my new year's crafting resolution of using up the offcuts).
