December 8, 2014 - My Bestie International DT Challenge #25 Christmas plus Vintage

Hi my friends and welcome to our My Besties International DT Challenge, #25, Christmas plus Vintage.  Again I'm not sure if my card classifies as "vintage", but when I bought these papers a few months ago, I knew I had to use them for this challenge.  Those of you who know me well, know how much I love purples and then to throw in a little aqua/blue with it was just right for me.  :-)  

I used my Derwent Inktense pencils to color this beauty with.  Love the InkTense pencils.  If you have never tried them or on the fence about buying more pencils, my suggestion is just take the leap.  I truly don't think you will be sorry.  So easy to use and I love the colors.  My set is the set of 72. 

Here is my card for this challenge.  

I loved this image the first time I saw her and knew right away she was coming home with me.  :-)  Of course I feel that way about a lot of Sherri's images.  If you love her like I do, you can find her in Sherri Baldy's Etsy shop by clicking HERE

Hope you see why I chose the colors I did.  Everything just went together perfectly in my way of thinking.  LOL  

Probably the only think "vintage" on my card was the lace and I wish I could remember where I purchased it, because that was the last piece and I love it.  Gotta find some more.  I would love for you to leave comments on where you get your lovely laces from.  I might just have to visit those shops.  

Flowers of course came from Wild Orchard Crafts.  Love love love their flowers.  Got to order some more soon.  Can't believe I am out of a few colors.  Not sure if you can tell by the picture, but I did use stickles on the white fur to make it pop a little.  I love glimmer.  :-)  I believe the snowflake die was a joy Crafts die.  

Anyway, just wanted to share with you my creation and thank you for stopping by.  Please leave comments below.  And we would love to have you join us in our monthly challenge.  You can click HERE to see all the lovely cards our DT members have made and also enter our challenge.

Since this will be Team A's last challenge for the year, I want to take time to thank you all so much for stopping by and also for the wonderful comments you make each time.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, your comments are so appreciated.  

Merry Christmas to all, Happy New Year, God bless and I'll see you again in 2015.

Many hugs and blessings,
