Penelope (Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!)

Hi Krafty friends!! Today we've got  a new challenge and sneak peeks of the brand new ANNIE stamps for September! 

Now if you are an Annie fan, you know that she's been doing some illustration work for a children's book and she's tried out a new style lately! Well, we LOVED the new style so much, that she's done her new HOLIDAY GIRLS stamps in that sweet style!!! We know you'll love them as much as we do. :)  Just wait 'til you see all the incredible creations by the Krafty Girls and Guests featuring Gemma, Grace, Joy, Madeline, Nettie and Penelope!! 


My card today features the beautiful Penelope...love this sweet stamp! And I adore this style of Annie's. :)  Our weekly challenge is a Sketch designed by the lovely Sheri. (you will find a picture of the sketch over at the KKS blog) I used some paper from last year from Authentique. The sentiment embellishment was created with one of the newHoliday Trinkets. It was stamped in Memento Ink and then coloured with Copics. The decorative embellishments on the card were cut with elements from Spellbinders Parisian Accents. 



Penelope was also stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. 





Check out all the amazing creations on today's hop in combination with this week's challenge at the KKS Blog!! The lovely SHERI is our hostess this week and her challenge features a fantastic SKETCH!! Use the sketch she has provided as inspiration for your card or scrapbook page! And the random winner of this week's challenge will receive the new GRACE, as featured on her gorgeous creation!! We really hope you are inspired by this week's challenge and share your inky creations!!! We so enjoy seeing your beautiful designs inspired by our challenges!

Beutiful colouring of the image. I like how you coloured and included shadows on her skirt that match the black cs you used in the rest of the card.

wow that dress is divine (can I ask which copics you used) it almost looks velvet and matches the sentiment spot on! I like that you used pattern paper as almost a wallpaper behind the image so cute! ~Patti
