Merry Christmas in April

Merry Christmas in April.  I just won this gorgeous image over at Sassy Studio Designs.  Isn't she just beautiful!  Her name is Elizabeth.  She is from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection.  I've been doing this post while watching Dancing With The Stars.  I think Elizabeth is totally dressed for tonight's classical waltz dances.  This was one of my mom's favorite shows.  She's gone now but I like to think she still watches it with me.  

To color her I used Whisper Strokes Markers and some Stickles from Ranger.  The Stickles just didn't come out like I would have liked to see though.  The papers are from The Paper Co., Bazzill, Martha Stewart and from my Stash 'O' Scraps.  I distressed with Tim Holtz distress Ink Peeled Paint.  The sentiment was my own.  The design is the sketch for this week at Techno Stamper.  


  I have entered into the following challenges.

Whimsy Stamps #36 - Distressing
The Poodles Parlor - Anything goes
Wags 'n Whiskers #78 - Distressing
Crafty Catz Weekly #130 - Anything goes
Christmas Stamping #8 - Anything goes
Paper Playtime #73 - Anything goes

I hope you have enjoyed your stop and please stop by some of these challenge blogs.  Paper Playtime is also having a blog hop right now.  They really are great.

Thanks for stopping by.
