Sweetest Holidays--Crazy 4 Challenges #7

Are you ready for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge? Vicki's got a sketch for you today, courtesy of Cindy Haffner. It's a super fun sketch so we hope you'll make time to play.

For my card I chose an image from My Favorite Things' latest release, Santa Baby. These candy canes are so cute!!! I stamped them on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers. Then I cut/embossed the image with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die, touched the edges with a PTI Vintage Touch Tea Dye ink pad and matted it with the DP from Cosmo Cricket's Wonderland 8 x 8 pad. The rest is pretty easy to figure out, I'm thinking.

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy 4 Challenges team!
