ABC Christmas Challenge - C & D are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Wilma is the host, and the themes are:

'C is for Clean & Simple'
and
'D is for Distress'

Our sponsor this month is Lawn Fawn
Lawn Fawn
Prize - $25 Gift Certificate for Lawn Fawn!

On my 'C is for clean & simple' card, I used a Hero Arts stamp called 'Snowy Winter Nights' heat embossing it using 'Silent Night' embossing glitter by WOW. I simply combined it with a sentiment from a set by Lili of the Valley.



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



On my 'D is for Distress' card, I started by smooshing Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean & Stormy Sky) on to some watercolour paper. I then stamped and heat embossed some snowflakes (from the 'Delicate Snowflakes' set by Stampendous) using white embossing powder. I distressed the edges a little, and matted it on to some teal card. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment (from a set by Lili of the Valley) on to a piece of vellum, tearing the edges and added it over the top.


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