Fancy Little Stocking

Well it's Thursday and that means NEW RELEASE DAY over at Meljen's Designs. Check out these fabulous images (which can be purchased along with the rest of Meljen's fabulous images, at the the Whimsy Stamps shop).


Wow, aren't they great? Well as always, with the new release comes a new CHALLENGE. Yay. This week's challenge is USE 2 IMAGES, you can use 2 of the same images OR 2 different images. Head on over to the Meljen's Designs DT blog so that you can check out this week's challenge along with all the fabulous DT examples using the new images. FYI, the challenge gives you a chance to win free images.


For my card this week I chose to  use 2 different images, "Fancy Little Stocking" and "Seasons Greetings" (this week's freebie!). I wanted to keep the card super simple. I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder on some blue cardstock. I used to shimmer white paper and some shimmer blue paper for the matting. I colored the image with Copics and added some Diamond Stickles. I finished it of with some silver cording and jingle bells that came from a Christmas bow that I had saved from last year.



Challenges:
Christmas Stampin - something metallic
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
OSAAT - Celebrations (I chose Christmas)
Digital Tuesday Challenge - use a non craft item
ABC Challenge - G for Glitter
Fab N Funky - Keep it Simple
