Hodge Podge Blue and Silver Challenge

Good morning and happy Thursday!  It's time for another challenge at the The Hodge Podge Shop.  We're slowly growing and Margaret has added several new images to the shop.  All images are priced at $2.50, go check them out here!

This week's challenge is to use Blue and Silver.  When I saw this adorable carousel I couldn't resist coloring her up!  I'm sending it to my BFF's granddaughter.  I used my Prisma's to color it.  Since Margaret's images are usually pretty detailed you don't have to add much.  That's one thing I like, especially if I'm in a hurry.  I chose to use the sketch from Friday Sketchers and I just love all the layering.  I used my Cricut and cut out the swirly tree and snowflake.  Then I sprayed them and the background embossed papers with my shimmers mist and added some silver glitter.  I was covered in glitter by the time I was done with this one - LOL.  I chose the dark chocolate cardstock to back everything I thought it went well as a finishing color.  Make sure you pop over and leave some love for my DT sisters too!

I decided to postpone my blog candy till the first of the year with everything that has happened this month.  So be sure and watch my posts.  Have a fabulous day my girlies!!
