Heartfelt Candy

Hello Friends, and Welcome to another Wednesday of wonderful inspiration from Heartfelt Creations.  I have two cards to share with you today.
This first one is a 6 x6 card.  I wanted a lot of white space on this card and I wanted it clean and bright~

 I was low on MOJO for this card, so I took inspiration from this Cardabilities Sketch:

And this color combo from Colour Q~

This next card is much more formal and traditional~

I stamped the background floral mat in a repeating pattern, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Gold cs and gold embossing are all that is needed to make this an elegant Christmas card.
Head on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to be inspired by all of the gorgeous creations by the rest of the Design Team.  
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  You are much appreciated!  Have a blessed week!
