Two challenge cards today

My first card today is for Michelle's challenge GKDJAN11MW over at Gina K's.
The challenge was to use something new to make a card.  I recently got a Tim Holtz Vagabond and then I bought the A2 Movers and Shapers card die with a window.
I cut the card using GKD Pure Luxury cs and then an overlay of Basic Grey dp. The trees outside of the window are from Theresa's "Life is Good" set, as is the sentiment.

My next card is for Tina's challenge GKDJAN11TG, using the ink resist technique.
I used white EP and then used paint dabbers over all.  Then I wiped the paint off of the lace border (from Nina's Vintage Borders set).  The furniture is from Nina Fine Furnishings set.  
This card is also for a challenge over at JUGS (Just us girls) to decorate an envelope to match the card.


I am very happy you stopped by and am always thrilled to read your comments!
