HIMCR Challenge #162 ~ Any Holiday

Happy Saturday all!  Today we have an easy peasy challenge for you and with all the holidays coming up, I'm sure you won't have a problem at all finding a card or project you would like to create.

Our sponsor this week is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  They are also giving a $7 gift certificate to their store to one lucky winner.
For my challenge this week, I decided on a Christmas card, so I chose Sweet 'n Sassy's Christmas Candle image. It just looked so elegant to me. I coloured it with copic markers and added a little silver sparkle with a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen.  I used the Cuttlebug Geometric Rings embossing folder for the background.  Gems and ribbon are from my stash.  Cardstocks are from GinaK.

For the inside I used the following stamps:
Sentiment ~ Stampabilities - Glory of Christ
Holly Leaf ~ Studio 18 - coloured with copic markers.
As you can see this was a very easy card to put together and it's one more card done towards the many I have to make for Christmas :-)
Now it's your turn.  Make a craft for any holiday and link up to Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge # 162.  You have till Saturday, August 30, 2:00 am PST.  You could be the lucky winner for this week's prize :-)  Also, if you have a few moments, take a look at what my team mates made for your inspiration.  You will find the DT's names, and links to their blogs, on the right hand bar.
Till next time,
Happy Crafting.

  7. I have this image, and love it! You've colored this beautifully, and the layout is perfect! Great job, Lena :)

  8. I wish I could color like that. What on-line resources for technique would you recommend? I have a real orange of regret that my coloring looks so bad that I don't send them when I'm done.


Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. They are always so welcome and appreciate :-)
