Friendship Card, and Christmas Card

I promised I'd be back today with more cards... So, here they are.
The first card is for the Inkspirations Sketch challenge. I loved the Sketch this week
And also for the Curtain Call Colour challenge, which features a colour I don't get along with.... Tangerine Tango
I really really struggled with this card! I had made some different flowers, but then they didn't go well with the oh so bold colours, so they got scrapped. I literally spent an hour on this card, which was a little crazy as I had 2 recipes to follow! I also stamped the sentiment crooked accidently, but it was the last thing to go on, and by that stage, I was well and truly over it. 
The second card, I love! It was made for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.
To be honest, I almost made it without that little tab, as I find them a little annoying and pointless, but I had punched it, and decided to use it anyway. I also used The Stamp-A-Holics Colour challenge for this card
This is the first time I have ever used the colour River Rock, but colour me impressed, I love the look of it, and have added it to my wishlist, so hopefully you will see more of it in the near future. 
Don't forget, that Blog Candy is still up for grabs HERE

Lovely card for the Inkspirations Challenge. The colours work so well together and I love the ribbon and the bit of bling. Such a gorgeous sentiment too.
Your Christmas card is also lovely, beautiful colours too.
