Sweet Dreams

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday like myself and my family did. It is always so busy right up to the holidays. I made this card for Moe's Digital pencil challenge 11 an all white card except for the main image. I made it before Christmas but didn't have enough time to download it from my camera and post it until now. I really love these digis because of all the detail they have. It wasn't as easy as I thought to make an all white card. As soon as I decided on a sketch I realized it needed lots of different textures to make it "POP".

This card also fit a few other challenges
If The Shoe Fits challenge #15 -color with your favorite medium, I love Copics so that was perfect for me!
Stamp Something Challenge holiday somethings- anything that reminds you of the holidays. I love the story, The Night Before Christmas and this image reminds me of that story.
Quixotic Challenge #7- the challenge this week was to use lace which I have lots of in my ribbon stash.
Crazy 4 Challenges #17-This was the sketch that I decided to use because of it's simplicity where my card was all white.
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 28-Last minute Christmas card, boy was this last minute! This was a great idea for a challenge!
Lots To Do Challenge week 51-This challenge was a free theme, make whatever you like. This is my first time doing this challenge and they have lots of very creative people participating in it.
Creative Card Crew Challenge 41-Anything goes, I love to create so this is a fun challenge to be part of. This is also a new challenge for me.
Crafty Cardmakers challenge #11-This challenge is all about favorite things, you are to use some of your favorite things of 2009 and tell why they are your favorite things. My favorites from 2009 were my Copics and love all the colors and can't help myself when I buy more of them often. I also love my Embossing folders and punches. Martha Stewart have become my choice of punches this year.
My Time To Craft Challenge 72- Anything Goes, nice and easy challengeafter a hectic but wonderful holiday. A great way to get back into the swing of creating!

These are all wonderful challenges, it's lots of fun looking at all the cards that others have created. Take a minute to check them out.
