Hello, friends! Hope you’re having a good week! Our new challenge is live over at Southern Girls Challenge and I’m stoked to share my first Southern Girls Challenge DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our challenge is Anything Goes and our sponsors this time are Auzz Trinklets, JMC Designs and Jan’s Digi Stamps, so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize! I was provided the Spicy Fox Collection from JMC Designs and created a sweet Christmas card using one of the images named Ginger! It’s never too early to start on those Christmas cards!
I created a Z-fold card base and layered patterned paper and cardstock on all the panels. I colored the sweet Ginger image with Prismacolor Pencils, cut it with a double-stitched rectangle die and layered it on tan and red cardstock. I paper-pieced her scarf and hat with red plaid paper, and added Glossy Accents to the tiny round elements. I stamped the vertical sentiment in brown ink.
I embellished the inside panel with the red plaid paper and layered it on tan and red cardstock, then added the stamped sentiment on a small tan panel.
And here’s one more look completely opened up. I love this fold and I’m thrilled with how it turned out! Pair an adorable image with some pretty papers and *poof* you have an awesome card! ;)

OmyGosh, this is so pretty, Leslie. I just wanna CASE it right now, lol. Your paper patterns go so well together and the plaid inside and paper-pieced outside is genius. xoxo
I just adore this Leslie! From the tartan, to the paper piecing! It’s absolutely fabulous hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
