For my card today, I used the gorgeous new Carmen from Spain set. She was stamped on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored with Copics. I paper pieced her dress with some MME paper from The Sweetest Thing line-Honey. I paired her with Black Licorice, Steel Gray, and Lemon Drop card stock. My flowers were cut with the Mini Royal Roses Die-namics out of more of the paper, and I used Black Licorice Grosgrain and Michael's brads. Under my main panel, the black lace paper layer is edged with the MFT Scalloped Edge Ribbon Die-namics, and I used the new Medium Fancy Flourish  Die-namics for my swirl.

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out the rest of the Krafty Girls' creations, and we hope to see you playing along!!

C4C163-Snowflake Tags

Hey everyone! It is time for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges, challenge! This week's challenge was to make a tag. If you decide to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C163. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

For my tags tonight, I used the There She Goes set, Stick Together. My sentiment was stamped on Sweet Tooth cardstock with Jellybean Green Ink from MFT. My paper is from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper pad. I used Fossil cardstock for my tag bases, which were cut out with the MFT Rounded Banner Stax Die-namics. I used Jellybean Green cardstock and the Small Open Scalloped Strip Die-namics for my border, and the Fancy Flourish Die-namics in Wild Cherry for my swirls. The snowflakes I used were cut out with the Let It Snowflake Die-namics from MFT, and I used Michael's brads, Wild Cherry Grosgrain, and Hemp cord.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to see what the other Crazies have come up with, and have a great day!!
