A Little Girl with Snowflakes and An Old Car Card

I love the new sketch challenge from My Favorite Things #249  I choose this cute little Image from MFT named Warmest Wishes. I stamped first and colored it with pink copic marker. 

For the background I stamped my old snowflakes stamp from Pink Cat Studio, gave white embossing powder and embossed it. Then I sponged with Salty Ocean distress ink. I used the MFT dies too to make my snow under this little lady and with the rest paper I made the three stripes behind the main Image. The Sentiment also from the same set.

Challenges for my first card are:

My Favorite Things Sketch #249:

I also made this manly card for some challenges:

How I made:

1. Stamped the words (Hero Arts) background stamp with dark brown ink, then use distresses tools I distressed the edge. Gave some brown ink (Tea Dye) to make it looks old.
2. Stamped the Old Car (Hero Arts) image on the vellum paper and gave brown embossing powder on it. Adhere to the stamped white paper.

3. Choose three buttons in brown, white and black. 
4. Stamped the sentiment on the black paper and cut it out and adhere on the card base.

This card I will keep for my Dad Birthday on November :)

  7. Dear Monika, your blog is not showing up in my Google Dashboard Reader any more, so sad about this. So I just joined by email so I won't miss anything. Thank you for reminding me that you had some cards on your blog. Both of these cards are gorgeous! I love the little girl in the snow - cute card design and sketch too! Your masculine card is wonderful - I like the antique car - this is a great image for a manly card! I will now check your blog to see if I missed anything else.

  8. A super distressed male card, I do like the print as background. A real cool card. Thanks for joining in the fun at Cardz 4 Guyz. Caz

  9. Your little girl catching the snowflakes in her skirt is just too cue Monika. So fun and your sentiment is so fitting for the card.. You dad is going to love your card.. I know my dad would love it because it was made by me. You have to call him when he opens it and see what he says

  10. I love both cards- you do wonderful work. Thanks for joining us at Crafting With Friends.

  11. Oooh I love the fresh new look of your blog, Monika. And I love both your cards, too. I know, I owe you an email and I'll see to that shortly!
    Right, putting my DT hats on I should really just be commenting on the second card - the car and the newspaper are very smart and retro, perfect for my challenge at Twofers, and the buttons finish it off perfectly, which makes it ideal for our Cardz 4 Guyz challenge too.
    Your blog seems to have stopped showing up in my Bloglovin feed - I see somebody has said it's not showing in their Google feed either! I don't know what's happened but I'll follow by email.

  12. The little girl looks like she's having so much fun in the winter scene and really awesome manly card, cool colors used. Thank you for joining Anything Goes challenge at Through The Craft Room Door this week. Please join us again next week. Have fun creating Monika :)
