Elisabeth Bell's World - December/January Challenge

Good morning!  Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas!  I hope you have had time to spend with those you love, making memories that will last well into the New Year!  I am popping in very quickly today to share my GDT card  for the December/January Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.  The theme this month is "fluffy white snowflakes".  Elisabeth has so many gorgeous images that can fit this fun winter theme!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Merry 6x6 pad.  My adorable Elisabeth Bell image is Winter Penelope from Sweet Peas Stamps.  She was stamped on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored with my Copics.  I added lots of sparkle with Stickles, Ice Glitter and Recollections Tinsel Glitter (on her ear muffs).  I used Polar White Flower Soft for the fluffy snow she is standing in.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It was from Paulette's fabulous Winter Club.    I added lots of layered snowflakes punched from white glitter paper to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of Penelope:

  5. you know how to wow us, this is gorgeous!!!! I love that sketch and the glitter!!!!

  6. Carla, Your card is phenomenal, but that is the "norm" for your work. Every day I see your cards and tell myself I am going to spend more time practicing my coloring to be as good as you some day, but I never seem to start. I think this will be my New Year's resolution. This card makes me want to just get a cup of hot chocolate and sit inside by the fire while I look out a window at this precious skater. Just lovely!

  7. What a fabulous card. I so love the image and how you colored her.. great dp too! xxx Ann Marie
