Snowed In

I've been trapped at home because of snow for days and it's given me lots of time to craft. More than I can even post so I'll just throw a few of my faves up.
Here is the fancy schmancy one with lots going on. I used my watercolor wonder crayons from SU to color in this image on watercolor paper. The other fun thing is the Hambly Screen Print overlay that adds shine and texture with that vanilla pattern they call Grandmas Wallpaper. My Grandma doesn't have any wallpaper that looks like that but I think both of them would like the card all the same. This was a challenge card for the Featured Stamper challenge 98 on SCS. I CASED the idea for the tabs on either side of the main image. This is the perfect chance to show off that wonderful double sided ribbon!
Finished size - 5.25" x 5.25"

Here's my quick and simple card. I quickly applied clear embossing powder over the flower in Baja Blue to add some shine and texture. Because the ink dries so fast it didn't completely coat but that just adds to the texture, see how there are no mistakes in stamping? throw on a little designer paper for a quick background and add some bling (silver stickers in the corner and brad) for a quick and cute card!
Finished size - 4.25" x4.25"
