A couple of DT cards

I have a few cards to share today, one which I should of blogged on Tuesday (oops!).
The first one is my dt card for By The Cute and Girly where the challenge this month is "Roses are Red".
Our sponsor is Template Dreams and I have used some of their digi papers on my card.
Template Dreams also have a Facebook page is any of you are interested. You can find it here. She sometimes posts freebies too :)

Sorry about the blurry pic, I had to take it at night.
The flowery paper is by Graphic 45 (I think) and the other 2 are from Template Dreams Distressed Elegance kit. The redish one printed out much darker than it looks on screen. I used this one on a digi layout and it looks a totally different colour, but I think it's because I printed when one of my ink colours were running out, so it came out a browny red colour. It actually looks purple in the kit, but it worked for my card this way :)
Oh and it also has an embossed look heart pattern on it but you can't see it here because my pic is rubbish!
The image is an old digi from Some Odd Girl and I coloured her with a mix of Promarkers and Copics.
I used my Martha Stewart heart punch for the border and some ribbon from my stash and the flowers are made with a Cart Us die. 
I also done some stitching by hand which is why it looks wonky! lol

My other card is for this weeks Digital Tuesday Challenge where the challenge is "Winter Wonderland".
My Grafico is our sponsor and they are offering a prize of any set in their store. There is no price limitation on the set the winner chooses, so you could choose a $20 set! :)

Sorry again about the rubbish blurry pic!
I used a penguin from Paper Pixel Prints Penguin digi stamp set at My Grafico, and coloured it with Copics and Promarkers (Promarkers for the black/grey as I don't have any grey copics yet). I also added some stickles on her tummy and on her earmuffs :)
The papers are a random mix from my scrap box. I'm trying to save money and use up all my scraps lol.
The snowflakes were cut with a Marianne die and the flower with the same die as I used for the flowers in my card above (I rolled the flowers on my other card and just kinda twisted this ones a bit to give it a different look). Oh and the border was done with a Cart Us die. These are super cheap and do the same job as any other die :) I was under £3 for the border one and only £3 something for the flower! Got to love a bargain!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have time to join in with the challenges.
The winter wonderland challenge at Digital Tuesday runs until Monday evening and the Roses are Red at By The Cute and Girly runs until the last day of the month, so plenty of time to join in with that one :)
