ho ho ho

Using my "go-to" sketch, this card went together super fast.

The image is from Sassy Studio designs and colored with Copic markers. I enhanced the "fur" with "Polar White" flowersoft. I added bling for her earring and very tiny cotton ball for the end of the hat. I also used a glitter pen on the belt buckle. I used one my favorite Spellbinders Nestabilities, "oval," to cut and emboss the image. Using foil paper I used one of the Frantic Stamper Inc. "stitched frame" from the Elementals #1 die set. I didn't have a stamp with the famous "ho, ho, ho" sentiment so instead made my own with Frantic Stamper Inc. "Mattie Thin Lower Case Alphabet." Adding foam dots was all that was left to add. Super easy and super cute.

Favorite Color Combination

Today at the Paper a La Mode challenge at the Outlawz the challenge theme is
"use your favorite color combination." 
Stop by to for inspiration and to enter your own design. Our sponsor is

They have a HUGE selection of images available. I guarantee you'll find something you like.

The image is called "Cover Girl" and was colored with Copics. My favorite colors are pink and black and I absolutely love animal print. The animal print Recollections paper has been in my stash for a while and I knew it would be the starting point for my card. I coupled it with a Darice animal print embossing folder. The image was cut with a Spellbinder Nestabilities Deckled Oval as it reminds me of the design of the animal print. I added the black lace and Simplicity bling for a sort of "naughty and nice"  vibe. The sentiment if from My Creative Time and was cut with a die from Elementals #1 from Frantic Stamper Inc.
