The Digi Bells GDT - Letters to Santa

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a great start!  My week is starting off with some exciting news!  You may recall that awhile back, I answered the GDT call over on The Digi Bells blog.  Well, I made it!  I am so excited that for the next three months, I will get to design alongside the fabulous Digi Bells and work with the gorgeous images created by Elisabeth Bell!   Today is my first post on the Digi Bells blog as part of the GDT!

Here is the card I shared:


My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Merry 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Letters To Santa from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  Isn't she too cute?  I printed the digi on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of white glitter to the trim on her snowsuit and hat.  I added Glossy Accents to the holly berries and Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the falling snow.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Sentimental Christmas set.  A couple of sticky arrows and a few pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Stop by The Digi Bells blog every day for inspiration from the Digi Bells and GDT with Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.

I am entering my card in the following Challenges:
Sentimental Sundays # 180 (warm & cozy; must have scarf, jacket or sweater and a sentiment)
Sunday Sketch and Stamp #182 (Berit's sketch)

Here is the sketch:


Have a great day and see you soon!
