Challenge #11-Red, Green and Gold (with Michele)

It's Michele here and I'm so excited to share my take on this months Challenge at Sundays with Crissy! For the entire month of November our challenge for you is "Red, Green and Gold" any way you'd like.
You need to go Here to link up your card to the blue inlinkz box at the bottom of Crissy's post

Crissy has four new images just released at whimsy stamps. She has designed each of them with the upcoming Christmas holidays in mind!
Hint: The week of Nov. 8-14 all digis at Whimsy are on sale 50% off!
Please be sure to check back here every few days as the other design team members will be taking turns to post their own creations all month long.
This month LSL Diversified is sponsoring with another generous prize they donated to give to one lucky challenge participant:
LSL Diversified is a wonderful Canadian paper crafting store that happens to be one of my personal favourite places to shop. I hope you click on the link and see what they have to offer, esp. if you live in Canada. We don't think you'll find lower prices on all our favourite crafting supplies anywhere else in Canada. They also have really low shipping rates and super fast service! And Crissy doesn't get any compensation for tootin' their horn either. She is just happy to let you know about a great Canadian shop!
Crissy will add to this package of stamping related accessories from LSLD, and throw in three of her digital images of the winner's choice from either Whimsy Stamps or Squigglefly!
All you need to do to be eligible for the draw is to use one of Crissy's digital images on your creation. If you are just playing in the challenge, you may use any image you wish from anywhere. This is just a rule for the candy draw.
I used the new Classic Santa at Whimsy as my image for this challenge, I cut the image and scalloped circle out with my Nesties, I first chalked the background with pan pastels in yellow as I wanted there to be a sort of "sunrise" effect, but then added some Tattered Angels glimmer mist in sunshine to give a more muted golden effect. I colored my santa with copic markers and added a gold metallic card stock in a border punch! I colored santa on Neenah Cardstock, Bazzill cardstock was used, I punched a sentiment from my computer with SU oval punch and then used SU scalloped oval punch to mat. The rest of the details on my card are at my blog here !
I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful day


  1. Stunningly coloured Michele, just awesome!! The image really pops off the page! I love the "glow" around Santa and the circle die. The layout is great and I love your traditional reds and greens. Beautifully done gf!
