Elisabeth Bell's World - December/January Challenge

Enter to win my blogaversary candy here until December 31st.

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday and Merry Christmas!  I hope you are enjoying your holiday time!  I am taking a little break for a couple of days, but as promised, I have a few scheduled posts for my DTs and GDTs.  Today I am here to share my GDT card for the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.  I get to post along with the Digi Bells for the challenge.  The theme this time is "snow and lace".

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Merry Little Christmas 6x6 pad.  I used some shapes from the Silhouette store for the base and image frame. The cute image is Snowball Fight from Belles 'n Whistles by Elisabeth Bell.  Belles 'n Whistles Stamps have been discontinued, but a few shops still have some left.  Loves Rubberstamps has several left, but I didn't see this one anymore so it is probably sold out.   I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Polar White Flower Soft to the snowball and the snow on the ground.  I added a bit of Stickles here and there for a little added sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some pretty white lace, pink twill ribbon and a few iridescent gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for taking time out of your festivities to stop by!  Be sure to visit the Elisabeth Bell's World blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the Digi Bells and my fellow GDT, Linda!  We hope you will play along this month!
