Apples, Sunrise and Christmas cards


and more cards I made for VSN today - phew, it's like a marathon ;)
first is a card I made with Apples from Flourishes. They are colored with Prismacolor pencils - I was planning to used Flourishes Timeless Tuesday sketch, but I didn't remember it correctly - hope it's still ok. I made the scallops in the background from half circles :)

next is House Mouse and Candlelight chorus - this one was a bit tricky to colors - very detailed and I didn't get the candle light as good as I wanted.

 This one came together pretty fast. The image and flowers are die cuts from K&Co, the background paper too.


The inspiration for the last card came from the current Color Me Beautiful Challenge - I was trying to recreate the Tuscan sunrise scene from the inspiration picture, but the original is always better :)
I didn't have Cajun Craze, so I used Pumpkin Pie & Rust for the sky, then Pale Plum ( didn't read properly, and didn't see it was supposed to be Perfect Plum), Going Gray and More mustard for the ground. Stamp is from SU Lovely as a tree set.
challenges:
Loves Rubberstamps - make your own background
Addicted to stamps - fall colors
