3 French Hens & Follow Your Heart Challenge

Hello all! I know I'm late but I like to wish you a belated World Cardmaking Day! :-) Hope you all had the chance to craft a little yesterday to celebrate this day! I was actually able to celebrate a bit and used the chance to enter the Challenge over at Susana's Blog "Follow your heart" (SCACD). Suzanne designed a fab sketch that you have to follow as well as use the following holiday colors: red, green, white, silver and gold! I had lots of fun working with both the sketch and the colors! And you have to use a stamp available at Susana's store! I received my order yesterday from Susana so it was perfect timing and I used one of the new Special Edition Ornament Collection designed by Elisabeth Bell, called 3 French Hens.

I colored her using my Copics and Twinkling H2O's. The image is designed as an ornament and I added 3D Glaze to highlight the ornament shape. For a detailed list of all items used scroll down to the end of the post.

Don't forget to enter my Blog Candy if you haven't already! It is open until October 8th!
There are some yummy Belles 'n Whistles stamps from the new fall release included :-)
