CGC DT Post – Challenge #157

Hello everyone! I’m so happy to see you again! Time flies and another Wednesday has come, which means we have another challenge at the Crafty Girls Corner!!! I would like to remind you that since the beginning of 2018 the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog will have only one team and will post challenges bi-weekly. To accommodate this change, a few simple rules have changed, the most important being that you may only enter three projects per challenge. Please be sure to check out the rest of our simple rules for participating in our challenges,  HERE

This Wednesday the theme is Anything Goes and we have not one, not two…but FOUR super amazing sponsors that have fantastic prizes for you!!!

Our sponsors this week are:

 Pretty Grafik Design

Prize: 1 Image Pack

Sparkle N Sprinkle

Sparkle N Sprinkle

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate

Lacy Sunshine

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Odd Ball Stamps

Oddball Art Stamps

Prize: 3 Digital Images

 For this challenge I worked with Christmas Poinsettia by Sparkle N Sprinkle! Gorgeous flower and I like that it can stand alone on a card, as sometimes we have to make way too many cards around Christmas and it’s hard to make so much time during such a busy season!
Anyway, I colored the images using Copic Markets. For the background I used Icy Spruce Distress Oxide through Tim Holtz’s Burlap Layered Stencil.The sentiment was created using Black Cardstock and the Merry Christmas Die by My Favorite Things.
With this card I joined the following challenges. If you have some time I would encourage you to hop around and have a look at the lovely things that these creative ladies have made!

 Aurora Wings: #63 Anything Goes

 Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends: #73 Anything Goes
