MelJen's Designs - A New Challenge

Happy Thursday to all of you.  We've got a new challenge today over at MelJen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog.  The challenge is to use red, green, and gold.

I used Rudolph for my card today.  I colored Rudolph with copics and prismacolor pencils and added some Glamour Dust to his nose and the jinglebells.  I used my glaze pen on his eyes and hooves.  I stitched my image onto layers of red and green bazzill.  I used my Martha Stewart double loops punch, and added a bow and some pearls. 

Be sure to stop by MelJen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog to see what the super talented ladies on the DT have created this week.  And while you're there, take a look at Melissa's latest release...this Rudolph image is just one of the many images included in this release.  I hope you can play along in our latest challenge.  I'd love to see your take on red, green, and gold!

Thanks for stopping by.
