Psssst! I have some exciting news to share with you today. I have joined the Card Design Team of Fat Pages With Attitude. They are an amazing group of designers who have several sister challenge sites and a whole lot of talent to provide inspiration for fortnightly challenges. I feel very fortunate to be on this team. My card today was created in response to Challenge # 29's theme which is to use Any Christmas Colour. Easy-peasy.

I was lucky to be able to play with this gorgeous digital image, Rowena, from one of our fabulous sponsors, Delicious Doodles. I just love Teri's images and always enjoy colouring them, especially the flowing hair. You know how I love to colour hair, especially red hair. Squeal :) I coloured Rowena and her little friend with my Prismacolor pencils and added a rhinestone for her sparkly earring.

The background paper is from DCWV's Christmas Combo Stack and is matted in black cardstock. A white cardstock rectangle was embossed with a paisley Cuttlebug folder before being adhered to the large matted green  rectangle. A silver ribbon was wrapped around these layers and adhered to the back. The image was mounted on a rectangle of the same green DP which was punched with a Fiskars border punch and matted on black. This rectangle was adhered to the background with foam tape for added dimension. A knotted length of silver ribbon was glued onto the image layer where it meets the other ribbon.

To finish this card, a mulberry flower and a Merry Christmas sticker sentiment were added to the top and bottom of the card. With an image this strong, clean and simple seems to work best so as not to detract from Rowena's beauty. Thanks for dropping by today. For more fabulous inspiration, be sure to visit the Fat Pages With Attitude blog and see what the rest of my awesome teammates have created. Then join us for this fun challenge. I always enjoy seeing what you make.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Totally Stampalicious ~ Anything Goes
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges ~ Challenge 73 Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge ~ Y is for Your Favourite punch/die

Life is good; so is art.
