Means of travel

   There is a new challenge starting today over at Send a Smile 4 Kids the theme of which is anything goes. As usual it is being sponsored by thrre very generous sponsors:
Sassy Studios (4 digis).

    For this card I began by wrapping two rows of yellow narrow sparkly ribbon and one of red around navy core'dinations cardstock which I had sprayed with iridescent sparkle. I then matted this onto red card. The digi image is from Crackerbox Palace and is called Santa with sleigh. I coloured it using Promarkers and distress inks and then matted it onto yellow core'dinations cardstock. To finish the card I attached red peel off words to yellow core'dinations cardstock and fixed them over the ribbons.
   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspiration - festive fun
   I Love Promarkers - traditional Christmas
   Craft Your Passion - anything goes
   Digi Choosday - Xmas with sparkles
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything goes
   The Ribbon Girl - any image
   4 Crafty Chicks - inspired by a Christmas song (Santa Claus is coming to town)
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Christmas
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Beccy's Place - Christmas
   A Gem of a Challenge - inspired by a Christmas song (Santa Claus is coming to town)

   My second card uses an image from All Dressed Up called Cool Dudes. Again I coloured it using Promarkers. I cut it out using a Spellbinders circle die and while it was still in the die I coloured the background using distress inks. I then matted and layered it onto grey core'dinations cardstock and white card. I finished the card by attaching a grey card candi to each of the corners of the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Creative Moments - anything goes with winter birthday
   Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes

Both your cards are fabulous Crafty, you've done an awesome job putting them together. You've coloured the images perfectly and I like the solid colours you've chosen for your card bases. Well done!
