Over at the Simply Challenged Challenges, the theme for January is New Year - Anything New Year's related, so I made a card using a Simply Betty stamp called New Year Betty from my ever growing collection of Simply Betty Stamps. The image I used is from a BUNDLE that includes a huge collection of digis and sentiments. And there are so many wonderful images at the store site, so please visit and shop!!
I am also coordinating this card with a sketch challenge at the Sketch and Stash Challenge which gives us a sketch and asks us to use something new or neglected from our Stash. -- That is pretty easy for me because I have lots from both of those categories. For my new/neglected items, I used a new paper doily set that is precut (how simple is that) from Martha Stewart, and a digi from Simply Betty Stamps called New Year Betty and an embossing folder from Darice which both of these I have had for quite some time and haven't gotten around to using.
And I am also entering my card in a brand new challenge called Creative Colors Challenge. I love brand new challenges-- very exciting!! Directly below, you can see the color palette we are to use and as an added twist, we must use embossing. That is where my Darice embossing folder comes in handy! Another requirement is for the card to be decorated and not Clean and Simple. I hope mine fits the equation--I don't do heavily decorated cards that often but I have added some embellies. Here is our inspiration picture for the Creative Colors Challenge.
And here is the sketch for the Sketch and Stash Challenge.
And here is my card! I colored the New Year Betty with my copic markers and have listed the ink colors below the card. She was fun to color!
