CLP-7 Challenge

I have discovered a new love....card challenges! Yep, that's right, card challenges. I am usually scrambling just weeks before Christmas trying to get all my Christmas cards done. And alot of times it is the same card over and over again. But since I have started participating in the challenges each week on several blogs I have gotten a lot of my Christmas cards done and not one of them is the same card!!

So here is my entry for this weeks Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge #7. This card was alot of fun to make. The sketches provided for the CLP challenges are some really imaginitive sketches and this one is my favorite CLP sketch so far. I'm sure I will use this sketch again in the near future.

Here's my card: (Supplies used to make card listed at bottom of post)

Here is the CLP sketch that was provided this week:

So how do the challenges at CLP work? Well, each week Chelsea gives a new sketch for a total of 4 sketches each month. You can play for 1 week or for all 4 weeks. It's entirely up to you. But if you play for all 4 weeks you get entered to win some yummy goodies. Check out the goodies that are up for grabs this month:
one Gurlee Girl Stamp of the winner's choice, plus three stamped images (Cat girl, Ribbon girl, and Cocoa girl). There are 2 yards of ribbons, charms, flowers, and papers as you see in the picture below: How cool is that!?!?!
Here are my other entries, so far, into this months challenges:
Image: Inkadinkado Stamp Set ~ Sketchbook Snow
Lace: Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch
Snowflakes: EK Success Snowflake Punch (lg)
EK Success Snowflake Punch (sm)
Cardstock: White, Lt. Blue & Dk. Blue
Ribbon: Offray ~ Lt. Blue Ribbon
