Vintage Christmas

I didn't realize it has been a month since my last post. A lot has been going on and I have not had much crafting time lately. But here is my latest creation. It is a card I made for Southern Girls and the Vintage Challenge this fortnight.

The image is from Whimsy Stamps and is called Pajama Time Emma. As soon as I saw this image I thought of a little girl sneaking down the stairs to see if Santa had come yet. So I generated a sentiment in Word and there you have it. I recently bought a product called Perfect Pearls mist. I used the red one on this card. It really added to the vintagey feel to this card. Plus it has a metallic shimmer to it and I loves me some sparkles. The flowers were something I found in my stash. I just spritzed them with the Perfect Pearls, shaped them and placed a brad in the center.

Copics Used:
Jammies: R59, R29, R24, E50, E41, E40
Skin: E13, E11, E00, R20
Hair: E27, E25, E35, E53
Puppy: E50, E41, E40
Shadowing: C1, W5, W3, W1, W00

Challenges I'm putting this card in:
Friday Sketchers - for the sketch
Creative Belli - Christmas papers and embellies
ABC Challenge - Jewels or gems
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Christmas Cards
Stamp With Fun - Christmas
Cupcake Craft - Non-traditional Christmas

On a side note: Does anyone know what happened to the Feline Playful Challenge list blog? I went there to get some inspiration and a blogger window popped up saying it couldn't find the blog, weird!~

Gorgeous project! I too am looking for Feline Playful, I knew she was taking a break but I guess I didn't know she would deactivate?
