Through the Purple Haze Here Comes Christmas Day with Penny Black

I can't believe it's less than two weeks until Christmas!  I hope you've all finished your Christmas shopping.  I still have a few things left to buy, and I have a few crafty projects I have to get completed.  For now, though, it's time for the last challenge of the year at Through the Purple Haze!  We're featuring Penny Black stamps, and the prize this week is three sets of Penny Black stamps.

I'm still a few Christmas cards short this year, so I used a Penny Black image to make this CAS Christmas card:

This image is so cute!  I used colored pencils to color the image, and I added six pearls from Creative Imaginations to add a little dimension to the package.  The sentiment is from craft smart and one I picked up at Michael's at some point, and I used Evergreen Dye Ink from Marcella by K to stamp the image and to ink the edges around the sentiment.  I followed the sketch from addicted to stamps and will be entering the challenge there.

Challenges Entered
addicted to stamps--Challenge #71 Sketch
613 Avenue Create--Challenge #50 Anything Goes/Optional Twist:  CAS
CAS on Sunday--Challenge #23 Christmas
Challenges 4 Everybody--Challenge #35 Anything Goes
Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' December Card Challenge--6 pearls
Whimsical Twist--December and Holiday Themed Project

We can't wait to see your Christmas creations!  Be sure to hop over to the Through the Purple Haze blog to get your project linked up, and stay tuned for our blog hop in January!  Good luck, and happy scrapping!

Hi Ashley! Just love your cute card! What a great image!!! I had to chuckle over your image in the bottle!!! I'm sure there is a story behind that one!!!

Your image is adorable and I love the CAS design! Red is such a rich, bold color and does not need a lot of help to create drama. Your treatment of the sentiment and wonderful coloring and embellishing of your image works "dramatically" with the red to create a delightful, whimsical project. Thanks for playing our twist this week. We enjoyed finding this on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create!
