Fa La La La

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week is starting off well!  I'm getting set for another busy week.  Time seems to be zipping by and I really can't believe that Christmas is only two weeks away!  So much to do!  Anyway, today it's my turn to post my GDT card on The Digi Bells Blog.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are GKD Lipstick Red and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Festive 6x6 pad.  My adorable image is Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.  She was created by Elisabeth especially for The Digi Bells DT leader, Lynda Nielsen, in honor of her birthday last year!  I decided to use her to make another holiday card.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics in festive Christmas colors.  I added Stickles to her cushion, petticoat and the little doll on the piano.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It was a freebie from last December, I think.  Liquid Pearls accents around the scallop circle frame finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit The Digi Bells blog every day for lots of inspiration using the wonderful stamps in the Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection!

My card is also for the December Sketch For You To Try on Jen Del Muro's blog.  Sadly, it the very last one.  SFYTT was one of the very first challenges I ever entered and I've been following ever since.  To be eligible for this year's amazing prize, we have to have done the challenge every month and list our blog posts for those challenges.

Here is the final (December) SFYTT:
