Three for One

Yes I am going to try putting in three cards and their links to challenges here. If your a regular you know I love to blurb on so it might be worth while grabbing a cuppa or maybe I will be restrained.

Lets see now.......

I have to apologise as all photos were taken tonight, rather late so they may not be the best. I have tried my best.
This first card I have made for a couple of Challenges but the main one is 

I started with a white card base and attached a piece of this amazing sparkly black card stock. Its all pitted and rough a bit like sandpaper but has a sparkle to it too.

I used a snowflake die (I think its a Simon Says one), very large. I had cut in gold card stock but I wanted more so I gold embossed it 3 times. I was going really well till the last time, got a bit enthusiastic dragging the die across the ink and ripped off a small section but a bit of glue and its not that obviously (unless I point it out and take shot that are very very close).

I finished off with a piece of patterned vellum cut into a tag, added a Joy die cut that was layered three times, the final layer white glitter paper (Added a white dot with white gel pen then added Kindy glitz for sparkle and dimension). A few gold speckled gems and its finished.

So will enter this over at Freshly Made Sketches #214 - A sketch by Jen T
Would also like to enter in 

Another new challenge for me 

Still here okay heres the next one

Okay this one I want to use for a Challenge using a piece of fruit but Im not sure Im allowed to have to partridge in the picture as well.

Painted with Peerless Watercolours and just added a little gold glitter on the needle work.
Red shiny mat to highlight the image.

Stitched die used to outline the image.
Added the sentiment and a few little shiny silver star stickers to finish it off. Again my apologies for the photo - too late at night for good photos but don't have time to do them in the morning.

This one I would like to enter in
My apologies if I have interpreted wrong by including the Partridge.

And we are rounding the bend on the last card

This was so simple and just came together. Joy To the World sentiment is a stamp I have had a while and not used mmmmm. Stamped and coloured with copics then covered very generously with Wink of Stella.

The beautiful Christmas Decorations are from a stamp set from Annabelle's stamps but are no longer available. I stamped and clear embossed the decorations. coloured with copics and fussy cut them. I went around the outside of them with a black marker so they looked neater.

Middle one has some dimensional foam behind it, the others are stuck on direct. Used a silver pen to draw in the lines going up to the words.

Again the photos aren't the best, my apologies.

Would like to enter this in 

Okay thats it, I know its amazing. All in one. Only disadvantage to this type of post is if I want to enter a couple of cards in the same challenge I can only go from this post once, if you get what I mean.

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Absolutely awesome cards, Aileen! Love the glitter, love the colors, love the way you've incorporated the sketches in your cards!
May I suggest you add the first card to Bastel Traum challenge too? The theme is glitter and I think your card more than fits the bill! Here's the link -
