Challenge #258

Hi everyone!!
The DT here at Penny's Paper Crafty challenge will be taking a break until the new year. But, we hope you will find a couple of minutes in your busy holiday schedule to join us for this last challenge of 2015.
This week:
Challenge #258
Anything Goes
Since being asked to join the DT here @ Penny's - I have had the honor of getting to use some amazing images, by some really great & talented sponsors. And I have to say - Lacy Sunshine has been one of my favorites! So I was thrilled to be using another one of these wonderful images.
Paper: Kraft card stock, the Paper Studio ~ Old World Winter
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Smooch Glitz ~ Frost, Distress Ink ~ Antique Linen, Memento Ink ~ Rich Cocoa, Range Enamel Accents ~ White, Stickles ~ Crystal, Paper Smooches ~ Christmas Sampler (sentiment) Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers Die, Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Circles die, Cheery Lane ~ B146 Pine Branches die, Recollections Bling

I knew right away that I wanted to keep w/traditional Christmas colors. And this wonderful paper pack I have from the Paper Studio works so well with the "old world" feel. I used just a little bit of the Smooch Glitz on the pine branches and roses to give it just a little shimmer. To make it look like just a little dusting of snow on them. And when going thru my holiday sentiments, I came across this one and it works perfectly!
Please make sure and check out the rest of the DT and see what they have been up to :) And of course - as always our AMAZING sponsors for whom we could not do this without!
Prize - 7 digi images of winners choice

This week's Challenge is:
Challenge #257
Anything Goes
This week I got to use a fun image from Faery Ink. I had never used them before. They have some great images!!
 I had seen a card I believe on Pinterest that had the vellum embossed with the happy birthday. I thought that was such a great idea, I thought it would be perfect for this card! And for some reason, I really like the purple and green together.

Challenge #256

Happy December!!
Where did fall go? LOL
Can't believe only a couple weeks till Christmas.
Well, it's time again for another challenge @ Penny's!
Challenge #256
Anything Goes
I got to use this adorable image from Imagine That..digis by Kris
This image has ENDLESS possibilities! Perfect for paper piecing - which I did on the 2 birds on the outsides. Just to give them a little more 'pop'. Or you could just paper piece the hats with a fun DP! Color the birds all the same, but give them different hats! Snow or no snow in the background....I could go on and on!! I added snowflakes to coordinate with my background.
I always tell myself "NO MORE paper pads"! But on a recent trip to Michaels, along w/their awesome 20% off sale & regular price items -
 I just had to have this paper pad!
Paper: Recollection ~ Cozy Lodge Christmas
Coloring Medium:  Copics, atyou Spica pens 03 Red, 05 Lemon,
 12 Silver, 21 Lipstick, Gelly Roll Clear Star pen
Other Supplies: Memory box Stitched Rectangle Layers die, Stickles ~ Star Dust, Recollections Gems, Doodlebug Designs ~ Sprinkles in Lilly White, and bakers twine, Martha Stewart Alpine & Arctic snowflake punches
I hope you enjoyed my card today! We really hope you stop on by and check out the rest of the DT as well! Some great ideas!
And don't forget our awesome sponsors as well!
