Elisabeth Bells World Challenge


It's time for another challenge over at Elisabeth Bells World.

This month our challenge is to make a Christmas Card without using a Christmas image, remember though that you must use an Elisabeth Bell image.

This month we are sponsered by Crafts and Me - the winner will receive £10 to spend on any Elisabeth Bell stamps in their shop.  Plus, as always, the winner will also get their choice of 2 images from the Elisabeth Bell Gallery

Anyway, back to my card, I chose to use Melinda Blowing Kisses.

I coloured Melinda using my Copic Markers, here's a close-up

I found some Christmas papers in my stash.  The die cut is Heart Snowflake by Marianne Designs, which I think goes perfectly with Melinda.  I also added a bit of "Christmas Magic" by filling a Tim Holtz Tiny Vial with some Gold Glamour Dust, sealing the cork with gold wax and attaching it with a big bow.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the silver balls are salvaged from last year's Christmas Crackers!

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges 

Challenge Up Your Life - Christmas in Summer
In the Pink - Things with Wings
Belli Challenge - Winged Things

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Penni

Your card is beautiful... I love that image and your colouring is perfect... and your layout is fabulous too.

We'd like to see just a little more pink if possible on your future entries at In The Pink.. though I know sometimes it's a difficult colour for cameras to pick up.

Good luck with this one and we hope to see you again soon!
