ABC Christmas Challenge December - Y & Z are for?

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so that means it's time for a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge...it's our last challenge for the year, and Samantha is the host. The themes for December are:

'Y is for Yummy'
&
'Z is for Zentangle'

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Prize - £10 Voucher!

and:

Prize - £10 Voucher!

I made a card for each of the two themes...for my 'Y is for Yummy' card, I picked an IndigoBlu stamp called 'Christmas Tree Cupcake'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut it out. I popped it on my card blank using some 3D foam pads, then added some sparkle using Stickles. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.


I'm also entering this cards into the following challenges:
On my 'Z is for Zentangle' card, I drew some simple triangular 'tree' shapes using a green metallic gel pen, then filled them in using a different doodle for each one. The sentiment (again from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set) is heat embossed in red.


I'm also entering this cards into the following challenges:
