The Digi Bells Guest DT

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I have a very busy day ahead, but I am popping in to share the card I made for The Digi Bells Blog.  As one of this month's Guest DTs, it is my turn to showcase one of Elisabeth Bell's adorable digital stamps.  Since I am way behind with making my Christmas cards, that is what I did for today.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are GKD Lipstick Red and the patterned paper is from the Recollections Botanical Noel pad.  The sweet image is the new Elisabeth Digital stamp that was released from the vault last week.  She is called Holly's Happy Mail and she is available in the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection here.   I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics in traditional Christmas colors and matted her on some gold mirror card.  I added two Cheery Lynn diecuts (Border Carnivale and Tropical Flourish) cut from the same gold mirror card.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It was part of the Winter Club.  I matted that on mirror card, too.  A shimmery poinsettia from Jolee's finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Holly:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit The Digi Bells blog every day for wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT!  You'll definitely want to check there later today to see if you were a winner from the November Release Blog Hop!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy (Hip To Be Square)
Polka Doodles #47 (Any Die Will Do)
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #53 (traditional Christmas colors)
Paper Crafting Journey (Case a DTCard; I cased Kanda's card, but flipped her sketch)

Here is her card:


Have a wonderful day and hope to see you soon!
