Yay For Me! (And a challenge card too!)

Hi Stamping Friends!

You know how much I love playing in challenges! Well, I'm so excited because one of my favorite challenge blogs Pals Paper Arts has chosen my card as one of its winning entries this week!

I love the PPA Design Team because they are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  And I'm all about anything SU! 

I do have a new card for you today as well.  This card was made using last weeks Color Challenge over at Stampin' Addicts SACC32.  The colors are Kraft, Soft Suede, Old Olive, and Real Red.  The sketch came from Makeesha Byl's (another SU! demo) blog: Inkspirations.  Here's the sketch:

So here's my card:

The colors just screamed CHRISTMAS, so I went with it.  It looks alot like Renee Van Straalen's card, not intentionally.  But there is only so much you can do with the same sketch and stamp set!  :)  Besides, who wouldn't want to CASE Renee?!  Her cards are gorgeous!  The one thing that would make this card better, is if I had used an Impressions Folder on the Old Olive layer under the Real Red layer.  It's a little boring.  Oh well!  Next time I'll have to be more on the ball!  The stamps I used were Dasher and Four The Holidays for the sentiment.  Dasher is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Dasher  #116816  $8.95

Four The Holidays  #116921  $13.95
