My Favorite Things

I'm so excited about sharing my first card as a DT member of the Outlawz "Twisted Thursday" team! For those of you who're not familiar with this challenge  there's an "Anything Goes with a Twist" challenge each week. Basically, make whatever you want, just follow the theme, or "twist". This week's twist is to "use your favorite things". It can't get easier than that, can it!

For my card I've used a digi from our August sponsor - MY BESTIES. You could win 5 images from Sherri’s fantastic collection. Christmas is my favorite time of year, so I decided to go with one of the Christmas images. I loved coloring this image! Normally I need to color up a new image several times before I'm satisfied, but this is actually my first attempt. I like how it turned out, using Promarkers in different shades of red, green and grey.
My favorite elements that I've used for this card are Maja Designs papers, my embossing folder with spots and my sewing machine for stitching. I've also used a dies from Marianne for the tree, postmark stamps from Kort&Godt and Frosted Lace Stickles for the ground.

I hope you'll take the time to join us in the fun!

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafty Boots - Christmas
2) That Craft Place - Stitch Real or Faux
3) Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - #29 Christmas Stitches
4) 613 Avenue Create - #33: Anything Goes incl. twist: Use Stitching
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
