Delightful Challenges

Hi there!  Happy Thursday.  I hope you're week is going well.  Mine as been overwhelmingly busy and I'm still not going to accomplish what I was hoping to.  Well, I will, but I will be late.  Ugh!  I hate being late.

Anyway, this week's challenge is up at Delightful Challenges and this week we're playing with Winter Holidays and the new release.  My card features an adorable digi called Droppin' in Ted...

I did another CAS card and I am super stoked about the results.  I love the stark contrast between the white and bright colors of image.   This little cutie, in my head, is wearing a white snowsuit and holiday accessories.  I embossed the base and the spritzed it with shimmer spray.  Hopefully you can see it in the picture below.

I did create my card based (loosely) on the sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge.  I did remove a couple of elements because it didn't lend to my CAS theme.    Can you see the shimmer?

Well, I'm going to keep my post short today, but I wish you a great Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by.
