Fairy Christmas Cards

Here are two Christmas Cards made using free stamps I got with some crafting magazines.
I made this card specifically for the I did it creations challenge. I would never have thought about using beige and blue together but I think they work really well.

Pink Handbag Card

I like the way the backing paper shows through the stamped handbag on this card. It took me ages to get the stamp to print clearly, but I am pleased with the finished result and glad I persevered!
