Another 90-minute scramble

I haven't posted lately, so thought today I'd share the card I made this morning for the Hero Arts Flickr group's 90-minute scramble.  Briefly, the hostess comes up with a challenge, and posts it, then we have 90 minutes to come up with a design, execute it, photograph, and upload it to the pool.  Sue was our hostess this week, and her challenge was to "use the same Hero Arts stamps used on your last project in the Flickr Hero Arts group.  The only stamps allowed on your project must match the stamps on your last posted project in the HA Flickr group."   


So here was my last posted card there:


Birdhouse Wreath

and here is what I did this morning, using the exact same stamps.  Evidently I'm NOT a morning person, because the only  thing I could think to do was to change up the colors a bit.  I like the result, but I don't think I met the challenge to make a different card; better eat my breakfast FIRST next time, huh?  I must add that the glittered kraft snowflake on the bow was an addition AFTER the 90-minute time had elapsed (it was originally a little red gem).

  7. Those stamps together are perfect! I love both cards in both color palettes and how the sentiment is stamped in color! The finish of the snowy roof is awesome!

  8. I love both of them! The blue is so pretty and a lovely change of color from the traditional wreath colors.
