CIC338--All Dressed Up

Hello and welcome to this week's color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. You are in for a treat!  The colors--gold, midnight, and aquamarine are gorgeous together!  We have a new sponsor--All Dressed Up--and the images are a delight to work with!  I used Little Christmas Girl--3. I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers and added a Wink of Stella to the white trim. I die cut the tag using a die from The Cat's Pajamas. I used DCWV glitter card stock for the larger stars (Sweet & Sassy star dies) and DCWV foil card stock for the background. I added a bit of aquamarine ribbon and gold string with a few sequins and gold mini stars. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment (Paper Smooches)using Faded Jeans Distress ink and then traced over it with a glitter gel pin. A super fun card just in time for the holidays!  Now it's your turn to try out these colors!  Can't wait to see what you make!  Until next time, happy crafting!  Debbie
