Hi everyone, it's Angie Cimbalo & Joyce Erb  welcoming you to a brand new challenge this week.  We hope you can play along!

I (Joyce) am so remiss...I forgot to introduce our new addition to the Design Team. Let's welcome Angie!

Angie's Card

For my card, I used one dog from the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp setNewton Nook’s Happy Little Thoughts for the sentiment, Kat’s Scrappiness Wonky Stitching Nesting dies and Kat Scrappiness Silver City sequin mix.  All these items are available at the Kat Scrappiness store!  I used patterned paper from my stash and Spectrum Noir markers to color the dog and to make the pink and black background on the border panel.  I added a small sequin at every point where the wonky stitched lines crossed and one for the sweet dog's tag.  Lastly I added Wink of Stella on the dog’s eyes, collar, and the wreath bow.

Our Second Sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle

 Joyce's Card
I made the paws background and printed on my laser printer. It was then foiled with Gold. I cut the die from Gold mirror paper. The dog is Paw Prints - Digital Stamp Set 549 (also available in a stamp set) which I watercolored with Derwent watercolor pencils. I will be posting a video soon for this card so check the Sponsor page. My sentiment really isn't crooked, it was shot at an angle to get some of the shine:-)
