warm and fuzzy

The challenge at SCS for today was to make a warm and fuzzy card.We were to bring warm and fuzzy because it is so cold. I made these two cards. I had a picture in my mind when I started, and neither card actually turned out how I wanted them to, but I really like how my second card looks. Today was kind of a crazy crafting day. I started my second card first but even though my first cards was stamped second, I finished it first. How my first card is warm ...I used "warm" colors -browns with my cool blues and greens. I used a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called Christmas Music. It says "YOU WARM MY HEART". The other Mark's Finest Papers set I used is called  JUST A NOTE. I stamped the treble clef and music notes on the circle and next to the sentiment. I also punched a little heart out of the stamped sheet music.

 My second card that I started first was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder, I did embossing resist technique. Before I embellished it, I thought that the white sheet music was just too light to be warm. That is why I stamped the second card. However, after it sat on my desk for awhile, I began to imagine the possibilities. I was inspired by this card. It showed a triple tiered easel card. Since I had made a triple easel card earlier this month, I thought I would like to try this way of doing a triple easel. How this card is warm...? Well, I started thinking along this path... Warm-sunshine- light. So the scripture from my Daydream Designs worked perfectly. I think the sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called LIGHTHOUSES worked well with the scripture it says LIGHT THE WAY. I embellished with more quilled roses ( I am kinda addicted to them.), floral filler,  a butterfly from Mark's Finest Paper set called CRACKED HELLO, want2scrap bling for the butterfly trail.

I am entering my second card in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
