Welcome to my announcement of the NEW CHALLENGE at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE BLOG.  This week we are challenging you to make HOLIDAY CARDS.  You have until next SUNDAY, Nov. 28, 7:30pm EST to enter the challenge over at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE BLOG.   While you are not required to use a WHOOPSI DAISY image, we'd sure LOVE to see one!  You can find all the AMAZING images at WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP and also a FREEBIE!!  Linnie's designs are so WONDERFUL and you get 4 images per sheet at a really FABULOUS price, so I hope you will check it out:)

As I have mentioned, I have been experimenting with lots of different papers, layers and textures and my card for this week's WHOOPSI DAISY challenge is no different.  I chose to make another gate fold card.  I used 3 of the images from WHOOPSI DAISY SHEET 150 for my card.  I chose a Grey Bazzill textured CS for the base.  SU basic black is used as 2nd layer and then I embossed red vellum from Marco's Paper with a Cuttlebug EF.  Button is from Jilliebean and green lace is from Webster's Pages.  Images are colored with Atyou Spicas and Copics, cut with nesties and daubed with SU handsome hunter.

For the inside of the card, I chose to follow the sketch from

I created the sentiment using Microsoft Word and cut out using nesties.  I colored my WHOOPSI DIASY image with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut out with Nesties and daubed with SU handsome hunter.  Lace is from Hero Arts.  Green ribbon is from my stash.  DP is Kaisercraft.  Snowflake is cut using Marianne's die and sparkly red paper from Marco's Paper, which is also used for the 2nd layer.  Pearls are Mark Richards.  Scallops done with Quickutz die.  I hope you like it and that you will come join our challenge at WHOOPSI DAISY:)
