Non-Traditional Christmas Colors!!

Good Morning Everyone, I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far!!! I was asked by a very talented stamper, Shary to be a Guest Designer for ASFOS Challenge this week. I was tickled when she asked me!!!!! I just had to say yes!!! What a great challenge blog, you gotta go check it out HERE. The challenge this week is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas Colors...Come on over and join in the fun!!!!

For my card I chose this fun Inky Impressions Image Prayer LiLi isn't she sooo cute.......!!! I thought stamping a tree and having her looking at it would just be sooooo darling!!! Hope you like what I created!!!

Also I wanted to say a warm welcome to the New Inky Impressions Design Team!!! I am so excited to be working with these gals.....Go check out their blogs if you get a chance and congratulate them!!!

I also wanted to remind you that you still have time to play the Inky Impressions Challenge, to make a gift bag. The real life LiLi is going to pick her favorite bag this week, you could win some fabulous goodies so make sure you stop by and check it out HERE.

I hope all of you have a wonderful day!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting me!!

Here's the Recipe
  • Image - Prayer LiLi Inky Impressions stamped in Momento Ink and colored with Copics. Tree from Stampendous stamped in Old Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I added a rubon to the tree for a topper that matches the Designer Paper
  • Paper - Regal Rose, Whisper White, KI Memories Designer Paper
  • Accessories - Prima, Flower Center from Prima, KI Memories Ribbon, Stickles, KI Memories Rubon
