Stamp Something ,,, Digi Challenge

Hi again :-) I am back with a new card for the Stamp Something Challenge ,,, this week is is

DIGI Something ,,,,, so you have to use digi images and or papers this week :-)

We are sponsored by lots of Digi companies so pop on over to the challenge blog to see whats on offer :-)

For my card I was given a choice from the HUGE range at Whimsey Stamps :-) Thanks Denise xx :-) As I don't have any religious themed stamps I thought this 'New Witness' digi from Big Hug Creations was perfect :-)

I coloured the image with Copics and used Prismacolor pencils too. The papers are Basic Grey from the Jovial pack and I used a Martha Stewart Icicle border punch and added a ribbon and brown pearls . I chopped up some raffia for the floor and added Star Dust stickles to the star :-) I am cutting down on the use of embellies ,, having spent hours removing flowers and substituting them on my cards so they would fit in an envelope ,,, am going to be minimalist from now on lol :-)

Challenges :

Stampin B's ,,, Use a Star
Integrity ,,,, Non Traditional Holiday Colours
Penny's Paper Crafty ,,,, Christmas
Stampavie and More ,,, Christmas
Stampin Royalty ,,,, Winter Holidays
Creative Card Crew ,,,,, Anything Goes
