***Clara in Holiday colors***

HI everyone!!
Yesterday was such a great day sharing my new exciting news!!
I played along with the SCS color challenge the other day...I used scarlett jewel instead of the purple toned eggplant color.........OOPS!!!!!
Well these colors fit Clara from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!! GOSH I LOVE these stamps..... I am very blessed to have such a kind and giving friend who has helped me stay stocked in Kimmie Grey rubber for xmas!! Thanks hun! :D MWAH!
I also used Mercy's Tuesday you might of recalled I used it for yesterdays card but I actually made this card first!!

Here is my card....
I colored Clara with colored pencils...desperately trying to get better with these... Her coat is paper pieced with scarlett jewel. Dp is 7 gypsies I found laying around. The buttons are paper buttons again made with ripe avacado papertrey ink cs. Seems very christmas-y as I look at it now! Now if I just had Verve's new christmas sets for the sentiments...Wouldnt those be perfect here?? I think so!!
Stamps Used: Clara, sentiment from Josephine-Kraftin Kimmie Stamps
Paper Used: 7 gypsies dp, scarlett jewel, white, ripe avacado, lemon tart-Papertrey ink
Ink Used: Versafine onyx black, river rock-SU, scarlett jewel-PTI
