Crafty Catz Challenge #393 - Anything Goes

Ok, fingers crossed this posts ok as I am busy at work and have sheduled this post.  Anyway today sees a new challenge start over at Crafty Catz and it's my turn to host.  The theme is as always 'Anything Goes' but I gave the DT a little twist which was to add 'Sparkle & Shine'.  Easy right in the run up to Christmas! lol  Anyway we have a fabulous sponsor this week 
POLKA DOODLES
And the DT were very kindly given some fabulous images to play along with.  I have used the adorable Penguins, coloured with Chameleons and copics and a touch of SN Sparkle on the penguins and the scarf. Then I added glamour dust to the hat and bottom of her outfit.  The blue cs base has been embossed with clouds and the white circle has been embossed with a brick effect, I was kind of going for an igloo look, finished of with the winter wishes die cuts.
And here is a close up of the sparkle

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon #420 ~ Penguins and/or polar bears

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with and for my card I chose One Day, which I printed directly onto some orange cs. Then I had some darker orange cs which I ran through and inked embossing folder to give another tone of orange.  I then used another embossing folder and some brown cs to get the clock faces which I then added some gilding wax (this is still a new technique to me!) both background pieces were cut using an edged blade in my Purple Cows trimmer (I had forgotten about the other blades until I went to change the trimmer to the guillotine blade! lol) I then finished off with some orange bakers twine and two little keys.

Arachnia Ana for Betty

Hi, just thought I'd share this card with you as it's about to make it's way over to America.  I have used a special image from Simply B Stamps called Arachnia Ana, I have digitally paper pieced her dress using a paper from Bearly Mine Designs and then coloured her using copics and chameleons.  The background paper was on my computer but I don't remember where from (but it is very old!) the gates and cauldron were cut on the Cricut and some glitter added to the cauldron.
