Crafting When We Can Challenge #26

Can you believe two weeks have gone by already.  Here we are starting another challenge at 

We are sponsored by 

Crafty Ribbons

Our challenge this fortnight is to use 1 large image, 2 sentiments (same or different) and 3 colors.  First, my image comes from Saturated Canary.  She has so many beautiful images.  The colors I chose are red, blue and green.  I wanted to make her look like she is going to a Christmas ball so it had to be a Christmas card.

I colored her with Whisper Strokes, Stampin' Up and Copic markers.  You have to sparkle and shine when you are at a ball so I added some Stickles by Ranger and some Glossy Accents to her hair and dress.  The pearls are Recollections.  Her gloves are done with a white gel pen.  I'm not very good at coloring white so I am still using a gel pen.  

The sketch I chose is from Christmas Challenges.  The papers I used are Bazzill, Core 'dinations, Hot off the Press, Paper Inspirations and A and T Digital Design Papers.  I have ribbon from Offray and the sentiments I did myself.  

Please go check out all the other fabulous cards from my Crafting Sisters at Crafting When We Can.

I am entering the following challenges:

Saturated Canary #25 - Dotty
Scrapalicious - Anything goes
Sassy Studio Designs #140 - Christmas
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything goes
Natalie and Amy - Anything goes
Krafty Girls - Anything goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty #91 - Sparkle and Shine
Stamp n Doodle - Touch of Sparkle
Aud Sentiment #62 - Christmas is coming 

Thanks so much for visiting today.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
