Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge

     This will be my first entry into the Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge.  I signed up for it and was sent this cute image.  By entering this card, I'll be eligible for the next freebie in January and when I enter a card made with that image, I'll get the next one as a freebie, etc.  I love Progressive Challenges and I love freebies so how can I possibly lose?  :-D  This one is by Simply B Stamps.

I took my traditional Christmas colors from the inspriation photo at {Pin}spirational.

     I used ProMarkers (my favorites!) to color the image, added a bit of gold glitter to the star on her head, then used a die from a set by Spellbinders to cut out the image.  I matted that with another die cut, also Spellbinders.  The 'ribbon' is white raffia, spread open and tied, then cut and the ends are spread open into a fan shape.  I added felt poinsettia petals and a glittered snowflake which I had punched.  I also punched holly leaves, covered in Glossy Accents.  I added little gems to both the snowflake and the holly leaves.  Making my own embelishments for this one was kind of fun.  :-D

     My weekend is flying by and I still have more things on my To Do list than I can possibly complete today.  Hopefully, later this evening I'll find some time to get a card made for a post tomorrow.  If not, then you'll just have to wait until Tuesday when I have a DT post scheduled.  The days are getting busier so there may not be much other than DT work between now and Christmas, maybe even until New Year's Day.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Try to find some time to relax a bit today.
