Two Holidays

It’s Friday, so time for another challenge at QKR Stampede!  Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself? My DT card features a lovely sentiment digi from Eureka Stamps named Happy Valentines Day.  I created the background with paper scraps using instructions that I found HERE. Another Eureka Stamps sentiment digi decorates the inside of the card. Lastly, I added a touch of bling with silver photo corners.

Friday also means that I get to share DT cards for the Colour Crazy Challenge. This challenge is also “Anything Goes” but if adds requirement- the creation needs to include coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why I so love making cards! The challenges last for 2 weeks but four DT teams take turns posting weekly inspiration every Friday. Join us and you might win prizes from our challenge sponsors!
Our sponsor this week is Polkadoodles and my card features a digi named named “Delivering Gifts by Sledge.” I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I colored then fussy-cut around the top half of the image.  I used an upcycled calendar page for the background, covered with a layer of vellum behind the colored image. The “snowdrifts” were easily created with torn cardstock and the fluff on her cap and boots were added with Polar White Flower Soft. I’m entering this card into several challenges, including Outlawz  Songs and Rhymes challenge, named Sleigh-Bells. I’m thinking that this cute sled has at least a few bells!
