Christmasy Wonderland (my first challenge!)

Hi everybody!  It's been a long time since I posted to my blog but I have some projects saved up to show you.  The first one is my first ever card for a challenge!  I followed this sketch at The Paper Players:
And, here is my Christmas card:
It took me two days to finish this card!  I didn't know it could take that long!  My favorite part is all the Dazzling Diamonds on the boot and snowflakes.  I hope the ladies at The Paper Players like my card.  I sure had fun making it!  Bye for now!

Arden, this is such a beautiful Christmas card! I especially love all of that sparkly detail and the little jingle bells. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players with your first ever "challenge card"! Whoo hoo!!

Ps: I'm your newest follower! Can't wait to see more of your creations! :)

Oh my scrappin' surely does run in the family! Arden I LOVE your card, I wonder who will receive it for Christmas, they sure will be lucky.
I adore the winter boot with all its glitter and the holiday paper, but especially love the ribbon and the itsy-bitsy jingle bells, so darn sweet. Great job...I hope to see more from you.

I am so proud of you, sweetie, for entering your first challenge! I adore all the special touches you added to your card like the stamped snowflakes and, of course, all the dazzling diamonds! I had so much fun making cards with you--can't wait to do it again!

Arden, I think you'll be hooked on challenges now ;) Once you start it's hard to stop! LOL! That's how I really got into stamping and when I was in a slump or had't stamped in a long time, I reach out to a challenge to get that mojo going! Your card turned out fabulously! Love that glittered boot!~

Arden, What a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing with us all. I love sparkly stuff (Dazzling Diamonds Dust is everywhere in my house, even in my kitties' fur!) and your card is wonderfully sparkly.
I'm GFC with you and putting you on my reader feed so I can catch all of your Fabulous creations. :)

Arden you did such a beautiful job on your card. I LOVE your girly girl boot and of course the glitzy sparkley snowflakes are the best. The tiny jingle bells just add the finishing touch! Good Luck in your first challenge. Soon you'll be designing just like your mommy. Hugs

Arden, I am thrilled to pieces that you liked my sketch enough to make this pretty Christmas card with it! I love the papers that you used and I especially like that you stamped a snowflake on your sentiment AND the background papers! And of course I love the glitter! Thanks for playing with my Paper Players sketch this week and sharing this wonderful creation!

What a fabulous focal boot you've created - I think I'd like some sparkly boots like these lol! Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week!

WA-HOO Arden, Congratulations on being selected with your card for your first ever challenge! How nice of Anne Marie to recognize all the details you used, even though it was two days in the making...it paid off didn't it?
A BIG CONGRAT'S TO YOU! Gotta get Mama to add that to your blog.

Dearest Arden I just had to come back and say Congratulations! You're a winner at the Paper Players Challenge. How exciting! I'm sure this won't be the last winner you 'design'... just like momma!
