Two more challenge cards

I have made another two cards that I am entering in various challenges.
The first one is a lovely snowman image from Designed 2 Delight as part of the progressive challenge on there. Every time you make and post a card using that weeks freebie the lovely Faith sends you the next freebie, it really is that simple so why not join us?
I printed him out, coloured him with pro markers, well the bits that needed colour lol,I cut him out and mounted him on some foam squares for dimension. For the background I created some snow with a white gel pen and some glitter, ripped a piece of white glitter paper to give him somewhere to stand, punched some snowflakes from the scraps of glitter paper, after I stuck it all together I embellished with a few sparkly stones and some stickles, after all you can have too much glitter and sparkle at Christmas time!
This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Bah! Humbug-paper tearing
Winter Wonderland-no designer paper
Designed 2 Delight-use image
Double Delight-handmade embellihments

This card is for the Fit for a Princess challenge at Tiddly Inks, I coloured her with the pro markers cut her out using the out of frame technique with the label nestie, I used some K and Co papers to back the card and created some mats for my princess using the loop and the lace scroll punch around the page sets. I punched the flowers and the butterflies from scrap card and coloured them to match the colours in her dress, to finish them off I added some sparkly stones. I'm really pleased with the butterflies as it's the first time I've used the butterflies from the punch and they are a lovely size for a card and for decorating.
This card is being entered in the following challenges:
TiddlyInks Digital-fit for a princess
Crafty Cardmakers-spotlight on punches
