Sassy Cheryl's Challenge --Cut it out--Pop it up!!!

Our hostess for this weeks Sassy Cheryl's Challenge is Heather, and she chose Cut it out-Pop it up!! Okay, I am going to have to admit this was a Challenge for me.  Because most of the Sassy Cheryl's images I gravitate to have really tiny parts and skinny legs and arms so I spent two days trying to decide which image to choose...I finally chose Cardinal and Snowman
The cut out and popped up items are the Cardinal and the scarf.  Trust me, I cut them out  and I can guarantee you they are the cut out and popped up items!!! 
The image was colored with copic markers and sponged with broken china distress ink.  You are shocked I can tell....LMBO!!!   The side dp was punched with a MS border punch and tied with a narrow silver trim ribbon.  The main cs is a piece of Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey from last Christmas.  I tied a silver ribbon around the image like a package and tied a bow...yep, a real bow...I can do it, I am just lazy......you don't have to agree so loudly!!!
The snowflakes are punched from glossy photo paper and the side dp.  The photo paper snowflakes were over colored with a Sukara Stardust glitter pen. 
I added a clear rhinestone in the center of each snow flake in the upper right hand corner.

Be sure you check out the rest of the DT's projects.  You should play along with us it is so much fun and with all the adorable Christmas images Sassy Cheryl's has out right now you could do a challenge, maybe win a prize, and get a head start on your Christmas Cards.  It's a win win situation...come on, you know you want to!!! 

Sassy Cheryl's releases her new stamps on Tuesday's and the images being released are absolutely cute cute cute!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Gorgeous!! I love cutting and popping - and you're right Sassy Cheryl's images are beautiful - but the skinny-legged ones with the flyaway hair are the tough ones to cut out! I've done it before...LOL!
