Rose Colored Glasses and Christmas Card #1

The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge (TOFF#44) is Pink. I haven't had a chance to use my fun Mad Hatter Octopode so I pulled him out and dressed him up in Rose Colored Glasses. I made the bg paper by sponging all my SU! Pink ink pad colors all over the paper, using an old SU! glasses stamp with Stazon Black, and then filling in the glasses with SU! Dazzling Details. I put 3 coats of Glossy Accents on the Mad Hatter's glasses after I colored them with Copic Markers.

This card was for the Delicious Doodles Challenge #18 which is a Bingo challenge where you select a line and use all the elements from that line on your card. I chose the line requiring Punches (I used the McGill branch punch), flowers, and a Delicious Doodle image. I just discovered Delicious Doodles yesterday, and I have to tell you that they are wonderful! The artwork is wonderful, and the images are so easy to pop up and add texture. Christmas Card #1 down - only 99 more to go - LOL!

Hugz to all!
