Card For A Few Challenges

Hi there!  Hope you're doing well today!  I found a little time for crafting before I head out to a few appointments.  I was happy to have a chance to make a card for a few challenges out there.  My card is for this week's Sketch Saturday #179, Simon Says Stamp Challenge (use buttons; Basic Grey optional)) and The Paper Shelter Challenge #38 (Christmas fun).

Here is the Sketch Saturday sketch:

Here is my card for all three challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 pad.   For the "Christmas fun" theme, I chose to use this adorable image from The Paper Shelter called Cookies For Santa.  Could this little girl be any cuter?  I printed the image on Cryogen White Iridescent and colored with Copic markers.  I added Glossy Accents to the glass of milk and the tree pot.  I added some sparkle to the tree ornaments with Stickles.    The whole image was cut out and popped up over the matted half-oval panel that I cut out with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the lower panel.  A few Basic Grey buttons and a sheer bow finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I really appreciate it when you visit!  Have a great day!
