Holiday Cards and one more wreath...

Hi, Stampin' Friends! I'm almost all caught up, and for those of you waiting for Black Friday workshops, I'll have those posted with pricing by tomorrow. This morning I got a bit of time to get inky while the boys played Go, Diego, Go! Yea!
So on to the fruits of this morning's labor. This one is based on the sketch #5 from CAS(E) This Sketch! and the awesome color combo from Color Throwdown, which for me is Pear, Outdoor Denim, Black, and White Daisy. I'm linking this card up to Paper Issues Stamp On It collection - go check out the eye candy!
I did some rolling when inking the ornaments. I accented the stamping with some Silver Glitter Glitz, a few sparkles, and some careful dots of my new favorite silver Metallic Marker. As a finishing touch I spritz the whole card front with a fine Krylon glitter spray- maybe not totally CAS, but it's a holiday card, so it needed an extra bit of bling! I wish the subtle shimmer showed better in the picture.
I also made this snowman card inspired by this adorable card that I pinned from A Blog Called Wanda.   I used a Swiss Dot embossing folder on the top half of the background, and a Snowflakes embossing folder for the snowman head. How cute is his little "scarf"?
I also was able to finish up the last holiday wreath for the auction this weekend. I think we'll do these for Black Friday - it's just too much fun to make them! I've got my eye on some blue and grey ornaments at Target...maybe add some snowflake banner action...but first, one more project for the Black Friday workshop post tomorrow!
