Elisabeth Bell's World October/November Challenge

Hi again!  I'm back just quickly to share some exciting news and a card!  I won the last challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World and I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the new challenge starting today!  I love Elisabeth's images and I was thrilled to have won two digital stamps from the Elisabeth Bell Designs Digital Collection as well as two Belles 'n Whistles stamps from Crafts and Me!    The theme for the October/November Challenge is "glitter, shimmer and shine".  I am so honored to have my card posted along with the amazingly-talented DT!

Here is my card:


My 5x7 card base and mats are GKD Lipstick Red.  The shimmery and shiny patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 6.5x6.5 pad.  It was so hard to capture the shiny paper in my photo!  My precious Elisabeth Bell image is Belles 'n Whistles Star of Bethlehem.  You can find it in the Crafts and Me store here.  I stamped it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Red, Diamond and Gold Stickles to make my image sparkle.  Two stars punched from red glitter paper and a shiny gold corner sticker finished my festive holiday card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by again!  Be sure to visit the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge and feast your eyes on the stunning creations from the DT!  I'm sure they would love it you were inspired to play along this month!

I'm also entering my card into the current Guest Design Team call on The Digi Bells DT blog.

Other challenges I am entering:
October Sketch For You To Try (Jen Del Muro's blog)
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #52 (all things sparkly)
Papertake Weekly #86 (fireworks - glitter and sparkle)

October SFYTT:


Enjoy the rest of your day and see you soon!

  25. Wow Carla this is totally stunning! I love the deep rich colours, the paper, the size everything! Congratulations on your GDT position, they are lucky to have you.

  26. I love your colouring. I am by no means an expert but a couple of things I noticed. If I'm correct in where you perceived the light as coming from, the big girl should cast some shadow on the lower part of the little one's dress. And the ripple of fabric right below the one the little girl is holding should be darker. Just a thought. Not positive I'm right but I tend to notice these things. I love the colours you chose and their hair looks pretty! More realistic than the way many people colour hair.
