Another Vase of Flowers & A Shadow Box Card

 I'm back to share another couple of cards.

A funny thing happened with this card. I stamped the clock with Versamark and was planning to emboss it, but the ink pad was dirty and it ended up a subtle blue! Serendipity! I stamped the florals and vase with black ink, coloured with Zigs and die cut.
The sentiment was stamped with the same Zig and I spritzed it to make it more like watercolour.
To finish I added some embossing and bling and then mounted it on a kraft card base.
Stamps:Tim Holtz Flower Jar; Clearly Besotted sentiment
Die: Tim Holtz Flower Jar

I'm sharing at the following Challenges:-

My next card is inspired by the theme at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, which is 'Fancy Folds'. I'm really challenged when it comes to anything fiddly, so I went for an easy option this time...
I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire and used various dies and stamps to create the scene.
Stamps: Paper Rose Tree Background; Kaisercraft sentiment
Dies: MFT Oval Frame; Uniquely Creative Stitched Rolling Hills; Memory Box Evergreen Landscape
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up Falling Snow

I'm sharing this card at the following:-
