Color Challenge & A Giveaway Alert

I made this card last night and entered it in a Coloring Contest with Digi Scrapkits (http://digiscrapkits.com) on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/arhodes1#!/photo.php?fbid=723729810974727&set=a.719556971392011.1073741828.223221007692279&type=1&theater)!  The contest ended at midnight and I saw the contest around 7ish, but was watching football and started this card around 9 and finished at 11:30! I just did make the cut off! :)

Ok, I know you're just about to bust on the edge of your seat waiting for the details! ;-)  The PP is K&Company Urban Rhapsody Designer Paper as is the PP behind the digi- I had some scrap left over so I cut out a corner out of the opposite side and then fussy cut it so only those few circles show! The digi is for a new baby line that is coming out on Digi Scrapkits so that's why I chose this paper it kinda has a baby quilt look to it! I chose "Precious" and "a new bundle of love" stickers for the sentiment on the card because babies are precious and are most definitely a new bundle of love! The "precious" sticker is Momenta ATD Super Sticker Pack- it's actually on the friend set but also describes babies and "a new bundle of love" sticker is Recollections Signature Stickers- the sticker has like an epoxy feel to it! The twine is red/white and the last of that color set and is from Heather Lynn ( http://heathernovinger.blogspot.com/)! Thanks, Heather! :-) I still have a few colors left! Now for the coloring details of the digi!  I used American Crafts Basics Red, Black, and Green; Gelly Roll Clear Star Gel Pen (to accent some of the lines to keep the legs separate); American Crafts Glitter Marker Fuschia- on the girl's face; Creative Memories Classic Cocoa Fine Tip Pen- on the boy's body & tail tips; American Crafts Candy Shoppe Light Brown on the spots, ears, noses, and tails: blue green, yellow, and light pink- I honestly don't remember the manufacturer because these are from an 8.5 x11 boxed set that I started scrapbooking with that I bought from Walmart about 17 years ago- blue green on the girl's body, yellow on the ear/horns/tail tips, and light pink on the girls nose as a little dimple; and I used Ranger Waterfall Stickles on the boy's hat to give it a snowy glow since I don't have white or grey markers. I may add white in the middle of the the white spot later, I haven't decided yet. It actually looks better in the picture than what it actually looks like here in front of me! I didn't decorate the inside yet since I was on a time limit! The card base is DCWV Greens Card Stack. I'm about half way through this stack and loving it!

Oh, I almost forgot I was gonna mention a giveaway that I saw on Facebook! Whimsical Twist is giving away some awesome Christmas sets and a chance to attend one of their classes! Check it out here at: http://whimsicaltwist.com/blog/december-daily/a-giveaway-a-sale/!  TFL and have a great Monday!!
