2 for 1 Holiday Challenge/ I WON !!!!!!!

I made the blue and brown card for another challenge and saw the new challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites. We needed to take a holiday stamp and use it for two different occassions. I made a Christmas and Birthday card with Unwrapped Tilda.

Both images were colored with Copics  and Stampin Up cardstock was used on both cards. For the blue and brown card ingredients, see the post below this one. Basic Grey DP was used on the Christmas card as was Spellbinder circle, Lacey circle, layered Poinsettia dies. I pulled out my Magnolia tag die, seam binding and pearls to finish the card.

I like how both of the cards turned out.

Thanks for looking,

Unwrapped Tilda

I made the flowers so I decided I needed to make a card and practice on my flower arranging. Looking at the card now, I think it would have looked better with two blue flowers and just one brown one. The leaves are made with brown felt.

Unwrapped Tilda was stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copics on X-Press It Blending Card. SU cardstock was used with The Paper Studio DP. Ovals and flowers was cut with Spellbinder dies. Added satin ribbon,  Robins Nest baubles ( forgot the name) and pearls to the flowers.

I need help!!!!!! I'm lousy on arranging flowers on my cards. It takes me soooooo much time to get the flowers on as the rest of the card takes to make. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The sentiment is LOTV.The Rose Creation die from Spellbinders was used to make the bottom brownish flower. I added a MS pearl and the bow was tied with the E-Z Bowmaker.
