Welcome to day ONE of our JANUARY Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are excited to share TWO supah cute new sets by artist Cheryl Alger!! You enjoyed last month's sets so much that we are continuing with a fabulous theme...FAIRYTALES!!!  We are sharing samples today featuring...
****ONCE UPON A TIME 3****

My card features Jasmine from the stamp set called, Once Upon a Time 3.
I have included the link for you, but it won't be live until Saturday night. 


I was inspired by the jeweled headband that she wears for my layout and colors.
This card was the first time that I colored skin tone other than Caucasian white
and this was the first time that I attempted black hair.  I like how the skin tone
turned out.  *Colors listed below for you, but I need to work on the hair
to get more shine out of it!!  Black is a tricky hair color!!  :) :) :)
