Broom Rides and Weddings!

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday!
It's been a slow couple of days for me...kind of lost my motivation to do anything and it's been a struggle to get it back...but I'm trying!

I have 2 cards to share with you today.
This first one I made up for our cousin who is getting married this weekend.  Unfortunately we can't make it to the wedding...but we are so happy for them and wish them well!
I love the way this card turned out!  I was a little scared doing a square card...not my style...yet :)  I have a hard time with scaling for something other than an A2 sized card...but I think it's adorable!
The image is Love Birds from Meljen's Designs, colored with my pencils.
The hearted heart in the back is a cut from Birds Cards that I covered in glossy accents and smothered with glitter :)  Had to have some sparkle on this card!!

While the heart was drying, I made up a couple of white roses.  All the layers are cut with my cricut machine.  I like the way they turned out, though I need to play with the petal sizing so that there isn't a drastic change from one layer to the next.  Can't see it too much in the photo but I noticed it a lot while putting them together and it just bugged me :)
I finished off the card with a layered bow, a printed sentiment from Create with TLC and some pearls in the corners!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
    Forever Friends #43-Anything Goes
    Love to Create #30-Handmade Flowers
    My Mum's Craft Shop #71-Wedding/Anniversary
    Little Scrap Pieces-Make it Sparkle
    Digi Design-Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement

My next card goes back to Halloween...of course!  What isn't to love about Halloween?
Love it!!  This is Fly Girl from Saturated Canary.  She's just a doll!  I am loving the witch images from SC!  They are the focus of many of my Halloween cards so far this year :)
I seem to be hooked on cutting out my SC images, and making layered bows lately.  Those bows are awesome, and I'm getting the hang of how to make them, but they also add so much punch to a card!  How cool to add multiple colored ribbon instead of just one color! Awesome!
 So I colored my image in with my pencils and added some small glitter dots to her clothes and the broom.  Then I made a little sky scene with clouds and a moon cut with my cricut.  I used my chalks and really detailed out the clouds.  I had to practice a little before hand to make sure I knew what I was doing :)  I love the way they turned out!
Then I cut a few bats and inked them in black, and added a printed sentiment tag.
Pretty simple, but so cute!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
