Kenny K's weekly challenge dt

Time for a new challenge over on Kenny K's Krafty Girlz and the girls definitley know how to get the creative juices going, so head over and see what they came up with to inspire you this week.  The challenge set by Bev this week is to use a recipe: 2 x 2, be that 2 ribbons, two flowers or two papers and two bows, that is up to you to interpret.  Before you do, this is what i came up with:
Using the new from Christmas digi's, Xmas shopping, colored with my copics and then giving her fur trim a going over with a puff pen.  I used two dp, two flowers, two frames for my image and lots of little rhinestones to help with the festive feel of all the Xmas shopping.  I also used my new Christmas sentiment from the new Mag kit and embossed it with gold embossing powder, then since i had decided to use embossing powder for the outer sentiment i went the whole hog and used some of that glitter embossing powder for the inside sentiment too, i dont think my heat gun knew what to do with all the heat embossing going on.  So much stuf to use that the old stuff gets a bit neglected, but i think for Xmas the embossing powder is the THING!
I really gotta agree with the advice i was given that finishing the insides of my cards just finishes them off.
Happy crafting
