7 Kids College Fund Challenge # 3

Hi friends. First, I have to send out a great big THANKS to the DT over at "7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog" for choosing my 2 entries to be in the Top 3 for the # 2 Challenge! Yikes! I can't tell you how thrilled I am!! Oh, and my sister loved the cards...and I hope the friends she gives them to will cherish them!

So...down to new business! This card features "Antoinette" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. She's available here at 7 Kids College Fund. I just love all of the Kraftin' Kimmie images...they're so whimsical! When you have a chance, pop on over to "7 Kids" and take a look...and don't forget to say "hi" to Tab while you're there! I'm entering this card in 7 Kids College Fund Challenge # 3 here. The challenge was to follow this recipe:
1 image from 7 Kids (easy cheesy!)
2 DPs (only TWO?!)
3 flowers (really? Just 3?)
1 sparkly something (I'm pretty sure Stickles don't count! LOL) So...I decided to get a jump start on some holiday cards...although many of my online friends are well into their holiday cardmaking!! For me, since it's only September, this IS getting a jump start!! hehe! So here's how I made this little card:

Cardstock: Rose Red & Very Vanilla (SU)
DPs: October Afternoon & My Mind's Eye
Prima Flowers: from 7 Kids
Flourish: Sizzix
Edging & inside tag: Magnolia Doo-hickeys
Ribbon, pink diamond (just kidding!...it's a rhinestone!) & Charm: my stash
Sentiment: JustRite Stamps (these are soooo cool!)
Copics: E11, 00, 000, 0000 (skin), R20 (cheeks), E25, 31, 50 & YR20 (hair), R02, 000, 0000, RV10, 00, 0000 (dress & scarf) C5 & 3 (skate blades), C1 & 00 (shadow), BG000 & 0000 (ice & fur).
MS punches - snowflake & leaves
Flower Soft (I used it for the fur) & lots of Stickles

I sure had fun making this card...and I hope you enjoyed looking. Please stop by soon to see what new "mischief" I've been up to! Pat
