Some Odd Girl - Annual Holiday Hop

Greetings All!!  So happy to be here with you today on what is SURE to be a crazy busy week!!  So fun!!  Here at our house we have Hanukkah, my darling hubby's 40th birthday AND Christmas!!  Whew!!  It's even a lot to THINK about but I know it's going to be super fun, super fabulous and wonderfully wild!

But before all that starts I am linking up with the fabulous ladies over at Some Odd Girl for their annual holiday hop!!  Before I share my creation be sure to check out all of the details here!!  I've chosen to create for the All White Challenge:

From SOG blog:

"A little contest and friendly competition. :V Link up and create a project that fits one of the catagories below and we’ll be picking the best from each catagory to win a super awesome prize pack! You’ll have to wait to see until the hop what the prizes are but you can bet they’ll be good! Here are the catagories:
Mens *Mens*- Create a holiday card for the men!
All White *White*- your creation must be all white NOT including you image. That may be colored.
Give a Little Gift *Gift*- some thing like a gift card holder or gift bag. Get creative!
Non Traditional *NT* - Non traditional colors or card design or subject. So many ways to run with it!"

And here's my creation for the All White - (not including image) Category":

For my creation, I've used the GORGEOUS 50'S Kaylee digi stamp.  I printed her three times.  Once on white, once on plaid and once on the striped.  The patterned papers are from G45.  I colored Kaylee with my Copics and then paper pieced her dress and apron.  I was inclined to color her pearls "pearl" color but I recently saw a gorgeous strand of grey pearls and I was inspired *giggle*.  I heat embossed the red glittery polka dots and added Glossy Accents to her shoes.
I've been working really hard to improve my shading techniques and I'm happy with how my progress is coming.  =)  The rest of my layers are a mix and match of gorgeous and luscious white felt (PTI), squishy and glittery self-adhesive foam sheets, wall paper samples, watercolor paper and designer paper and cardstock.  And it all just kind of came together!  I've used a number of steel dies from MFT and my circle Spellbinder Nesties.  My embellishments include matte white brads, white cotton yarn, and pearl tipped stick pins.  True luxury my friends! 
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired to come hop and link up over at the Some Odd Girl Blog!!

See you there!

Holiday Hugs!
