Crafters Companion Challenge 19 - New Beginnings.

I would like to enter the two following cards into the New Beginnings - Crafters Companion's Blog Challenge 19 for December.

I've made both of these card previously. I had some lovely positive comments from people about these cards.

The first is a Christening card using the Peter Rabbit cdrom from the Beatrix Potter Collection.

This card was a commissioned card for one of my regular customers.  I used the Peter Rabbit cdrom for the decoupage, backing paper and insert.  I used the A3 Snow white card from CCompanion to make the A4 card.  To try something different I printed the sentiment onto acetate and on the reverse I sprayed CC Spray and Sparkle Iridescent then mounted this onto silver mirror board.  I thought that this was different and the recipient was thrilled with the card for her Godson.

The second card is "First Day at School" card I made for my nephew, Kian.

I used the Popcorn the Bear stamp (from one of the Kids Collection stamps), coloured with promarkers (this was one of my first attempts at colouring with alcohol markers.  I've since switched to Spectrum Noirs.), Popcorn Kids Collection CDROM for the backing paper and matching insert, A4 pastel yellow card to make an A5 card and gold mirror card for matting and layering. 

My nephew loved this card and so did my brother and sister in law. 

Thank you for stopping by to look at my posting.  Please feel free to comment and offer any criticism or advice you may like to add.  Thank you in advance.
