KLSNS New Years Kick Off Challenge

Happy New Year ~ I hope yours is off to a wonderful start! 

Speaking of starts, this is my first post as a DT member for KLSNS.  I am excited to be working with Kelly, Kristine and the other talented ladies on the team and look forward to the next four months!

To kick off the new year and the new DT, KLSNS is offering a fantastic prize to the winner of our first challenge of the year ~ Look at all these goodies! 

Included in this prize package is at least one High Hopes stamp, at least one Stampavie stamp, at least one CC Designs stamp, chipboard shapes, buttons and other embellishments, Basic Grey paper, a pink and black card kit with matching notebook and a gift bag.  Makes me wish I could enter ;)

So what do you have to do for a chance to win all these goodies?  Just join us in this weeks challenge over on the KLSNS blog.  You have until Midnight on Friday, January 8th to enter.  The top 3 entries will also be awarded a blinky for their blogs.

Now onto this weeks challenge.  We were given this sketch to follow (and it is one I will definitely use again):

And here is my interpretation of it:

I used this cute Liugi Pizza Guy stamp by High Hopes to make a Valentine's Day card.  The pizza he is holding reminds me of those huge decorated cookie "cakes", so I just had to color it that way.  I also tried something new ~ instead of shading the white with gray tones, I used earth tones and I have to say that I like the way it looks with the colors on this card ~ sometimes it pays to try something different!

Be sure to check out the creations of the rest of the DT (links are on the left side bar). 

Have a fantastic day!
