Digi Doodle Shop Best Challenge DDSB#39

We have an "Anything Goes" challenge for you this week at Digi Doodle Shop's Best. I truly enjoy visiting blogs and commenting on entries. I am so inspired by everyone!! Sometimes it could be a punch you use that I don't own, or a color scheme, stamp, and the list goes on and on!!
You've seen this image before from some of the other DT members but I just love it and had to put my own spin on it : )

Fitting image for this week wouldn't you say? And it is truly from the heart. I do wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!!
You can find that gorgeous image here.
Here's a close up:
I added Glossy Accents to the windows to give them the feel of real leaded glass panels. The stitching was done with embroidery floss and then I glued on some red glass seed beads.
Here's a close up of the sentiment which is part of free word art set available here from Digi Doodle Shop.

The greenery was punched with my Martha Stewart punch.
Greenery: G28, YG03
Berries and Bows: R29, R27, R24
Windows: B00, BG10
Shading on white: BG10, C1

I also added SnowWriter and DecoArt GlamourDust to the steps and railings. The only other detail left is the paper which is from Webster's pages.

Again, Merry Christmas and I do hope you will come by for the Challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best and swing by Digi Doodle Shop to see all the great images Judy and her mom have. They are all still on sale for 50% off for the remainder of the month!! That means most stamps are like $1.50!! Best thing about digi's.. you get them NOW!!
Also, we will be taking a break next week so our current challenge will last for two weeks. What are you going to make with all those new thing- a - ma- bobs you got for Christmas?  We will see you back for our first challenge in 2011 Jan. 6th : )

I really really love that card...ever since I saw it uploaded :-) The papers are amazing and the door with that shading is as the real thing! The white-cream-red colors made it really "holiday".

Happy holidays to you too!

I am so upset at myself. I just finished a card with an image from digi doodle that would fit this challenge and I must have popped it in my envelope and sent it out with no pictures!! Dang it!!!!
