January’s Challenge Card

Good Morning crafters, I am sitting here sipping my tea and trying to warm up, baby it’s cold outside there this morning!  I just wanted to pop on here before I start my day and post my card that I created for January’s Sketch Challenge on The Cutting Garden blog.  Here is a peek at what I created:

challenge card for januart I stamped that image on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored only her hair and dress with my Gamsol and colored pencils.  I added some ultra fine garnet colored glitter to the heart in her hand.  The image is a SU image that I always said reminded me of the Campbell Soup kids.  I dry embossed some red card stock with a heart Texture Impression folder from Sizzix.  I die cut the image with my square Spellbinder and backed it with my square heart Spellbinders in the same red as the embossed front of the card.  I added a piece of patterned paper from the new Valentine line from Imaginese that Kim is currently carrying.  I punched out a strip of card stock using my doily edge punch from Martha Stewart and a heart from one of her fabulous punches using some my red glitter covered card stock from my stash.  I punched holes in the heart, creating a button that I added some red bakers twine to it.  I stamped out the sentiment with some red chalk ink from my stash and flat taped it to the card front.  I inked the entire card with the same red chalk ink.  It was a simple card that was a lot of fun to make.

Here is the link to the blog post for this month’s challenge over on The Cutting Garden‘s blog.

Thanks for peeking in and stay warm!!!
