Hello everyone and welcome to another fabulous challenge!  Today SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS is sponsoring:

Our challenge this week is "Brown, Aqua & Pink".  

Since the Christmas season is upon us, I chose to do another Christmas card.  You can't have too many.  I always seem to be struggling at the last minute to get them done.  For this reason I have decided all my cards will be for Christmas until I have enough (or the challenge requires otherwise).  Since these colors do not scream Christmas, I made a non-traditional Christmas card with one of the new images from Sassy Studio Designs.  This one is called Santa Pinup.  Isn't she just gorgeous!  I think this is my favorite of the new set.  

I have colored my image with Copic, Stampin' Up and Whisper Strokes markers.  I added Glossy Accents to her belt and boots, some Stickles on her eyes and mixed into Liquid Applique for her fur.  I wasn't sure if it would turn out right.  Silly me started it before trying it on a separate sheet of paper.  I think it turned out OK, don't you?  The design comes from the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.

I rotated it and added a small amount of embellishing.  The design papers are from PaperCraft Inspirations & Bearly Mine, the other from Graphic 45.  The pearls are Inky Impressions, the ribbon Darice and the flower is Prima Flowers.  The sentiment I did on Word.  

Please stop over to the SSD Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT have created then get crafting and join us in the challenge at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge.  Hope to see you there.

Wonderful card Robin - she is a cheeky lady isn't she!

Sorry I haven't been able to pop by sooner - I've been having horrible problems with Blogger but hopefully everything is sorted now (fingers crossed!).
