Hanna Stamps November/December Release Challenge

It is hard to believe that it is November and that means a new release from Hanna Stamps.  Due to the frenzy of the holidays Hanna Stamps is having a single Release on November 16 for November and December sets.  The Release Party Challenge gives the DT members an opportunity to sneak in a new set in the challenge :)  You should play the challenge as Hanna Stamps is offering a 20.00 gift certificate.  The winner will be announced at the Release Party between 9:30 and 10:00.
This month Kristi of Hanna Stamps decided to release her new sets a couple of weeks early in order for everyone to be able to get those new sets in time for Holiday gift giving.
Here is my first sneak peak from the Chanuka Hanna set:

I used my newly discovered favorite Holiday dp called Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey. Hanna is colored in copic markers.  The texture of the skirt was created using the blender copic marker and pouncing the marker up and down all over the skirt area to gain the effect.  Just a tip to do some pouncing but remember that as it dries it lightens even more and you can redo it to take off more but it is very difficult to add the color back.
The images were cut out using the Spellbinder Label 4 die cuts and then embossed to attain the rim around the edge.  The rim along the edge was outlined with the Atyou gold glitter pen. 
The gold ribbon was laid on and then I tied a real bow and attached it on top of the strand of ribbon.  I created white and red/cream flowers using the MS geranium flower punches I got at Michaels.  I love these little flowers.
This card was created for the Hanna Stamps New Release Challenge which was a sketch challenge.  I followed it almost perfectly, however, I did add the 3 flowers in the upper left hand corner that the sketch didn't show. 
We are going to have a DT blog hop on Sunday November 15 to jumpstart the release party which will be Monday November 16 at 8:00 pm Central Time.
Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow!
