I have two CDBC challenge cards to share with you today.  Here is my first  card for the challenge.  I used the new DP "Sledding Ants" set.  I really had fun coloring and embellishing this fun image.  I trimmed the little hats and earmuffs with fun flock; made snow with a mix of flower soft and glitter; and, of course, I had to add some bling and a yummy bow!

My next card showcases the new Doodle Pantry set called  "Holly and Juniper".  I used the the Holly image and one of the sentiments from this set to make a vintage-style card.  My holly image was colored with Copics.  I created a background collage of vintage images torn from a sheet of designer series paper.  The Santa image was punched from the same sheet of paper and popped up with dimensionals.  Finishing touches include lace, ribbon and a button.

For more information regarding the challenge, and samples of all the new Doodle Pantry images released today, please check out Laurie's Clearly Delightful Blog challenge post HERE.  Have a great holiday weekend and thanks for stopping by!  Sure hope you join in the fun!!
