A New Challenge at Kenny K's Krafy Krew

Gosh! It's Sunday again already? I just don't know where this week has gone, much less this year! It has really flown by that's for sure. Winter keeps coming and going around here and I understand it's supposed to be back some time Monday. I think it was about 85 degrees here today and my air conditioner kept cutting on and off. I have spent the entirity of the past 2 days in my craft room, working on a couple of design team projects, 2 commissioned cards and a birthday card.  I still have one more card and another design team project to work on today.  I'm trying to get them finished up so I can concentrate some time on Christmas gifts I need to make. Good thing I work well under pressure!

Sooo... today is the start of a brand new challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and this time the theme is "Silver and White". This really was a big challenge for me as I usually use several colors in my projects and although I love this combination (if you can call it that), I had to reign in my desire to "color it up"! LOL I think I did pretty well but I'll let you decide for yourselves. But first, I need to get some challenge details out of the way.

This weeks first sponsor is Kenny K's Downloads

The prize from Kenny is the winner's choice of 5 digi's.

Now, for my card.

This divine creature is called "Mae Western" and she is very fun to color. She is available for purchase here. I used a pearlized white embossed paper for the background and an EK Success border punch to make the snowflakes at the bottom.

I glittered Mae's hat, scarf and top with Diamond Dust glitter and used metallic silver gel pen to color the silver accents on her costume.

 The scalloped circle was made with a Nestie, outlined in silver gel pen and the rhinestones were glued on one at a time. 

The white poinsettias are from Petaloo and the silver ribbon came from Michael's dollar bin. The glittery snowflake is a sticker that I got from Hobby Lobby about 3 years ago. I don't know if they still carry them but I'd like to have several more packages of them.  I seem to use them on my cards every year and I don't have many left now.

 Above is a close up showing all of Mae's voluptuous details. What I'd give to have a body like this gal! LOL!

Don't you love her silver and white platform cowboy boots? I hope you'll take a few minutes to drop by the Krafty Krew site to see what my teammates have done to inspire you. We'd love to have you join us in this challenge as well.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Color Me Creative Classroom Copic Challenge #58 - Metallic Gleam
Here Come The Boys #42- Anything Goes 

That's all I have for you today but I'll be back soon with a bunch of new cards and a couple of other projects. I hope you're all getting ready for the holiday as it will be here before we know it. Have a wonderful day, a productive week and until next time...

Happy crafting!
