7 Kids College Fund Challenge~ANYTHING GOES

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope you all have had a great week so far! It's the new year and time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge. HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope you rang it in with a blast!! The challenge for the next 2 weeks is:


Just be sure to use a stamp sold in the 7 Kids College Fund Store in order to be eligible for the prize and top 3!!

Those of us on the Design Team will be switching things up a bit. Even though our challenge will be "Anything Goes", we decided to add a twist of WHITE ON WHITE for our cards today!! So be sure to head over to the 7 Kids Challenge Blog to see all the creations from my fellow DT Sisters!!
On my card today I used this super cute image called Little Darlings Trimming The Tree from Saturated Canary. I know, I's a Christmas card, but I'm always late so you'll see a few for Christmas cards from me this coming week. She was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11
Hair: E44, E47, E49
Red: R22, R24, R27, R29
Green: G21, G24, G28
Blue: B91, B93, B95
Shoes/Tree Box: E41, E42, E43

Okay, I did cheat a little and added some kraft cardstock to the mix. But the rest is white cardstock with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges. I even pulled out my newly purchased CHEVRON Embossing Folder from Crafters Companion. I LOVE the 6x6 size since that's the card size I make most often! I used some Stampendous Frantage Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel around the image. To make the poinsettia, I used my favorite Spellbinders Poinsettia Creations Shapabilities die. I curled the petals before assembling and added Melissa Frances Pewter pearls to the center. The lace was in my stash.
