Kraftin Kimmie for World Card Making Day

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends. I am sure by now you are all full of turkey and ready for a nap.
In honor of World Card Making Day, Kraftin Kimmie has been holding some extra challenges with a chance to win a guest DT spot for the month of December which is something that I would love to do so I have made up a couple of cards today so that I might throw my hat in the ring so to speak.
This first card I have to show you I will be entering in challenge #1 for which the theme is Pink.

I have used Anntoinette, (the first Kimmie stamp that I ever bought and still one of my favorites) and coloured her up to match some older papers from Basic Grey. Her dress has been accented using liquid applique to give the fur trim some extra dimension. As this card is sweet and feminine I have accented with lots of flowers and added a seet little sentiment to finish it off.
My second card is for challenge number 5, for which the them was circles. I have coloured this wonderful little elf from last years Holiday stamps in fun bright colours and paired it with some of the new Basic Grey papers. I have kepte the layout for this one really simple as the image really stand on its own which means that this one will be perfect for popping in the mail.
I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend, see you again soon!
