Elisabeth Bell's World January/February Challenge

It's me again!  I promise this is the last post from me today. It rarely happens that so many things come at once.  If you are looking for my Sketch Saturday or Super Saturday posts, please scroll down one or two posts.  Anyway, I am here with my card for the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge.  I get to play along again as part of the GDT this term.  The theme this month is "white on white with a pop of red".  You can use any Elisabeth Bell image to enter.

Here is my card:

Those who know me know that, although very simple, this was hard for me!  I am rarely without my beloved patterned papers!  Using so much white scares me - lol!  Anyway, you can see that I've layered up diecuts from the Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty-Five set.  I popped some of the layers up on foam tape for added dimension.  The sweet image is Little Mama from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.   She is printed on Hammermill Color Copy Digital 100 lb. Coverstock (I'm trying a new coloring cardstock) and colored with my Copics.  I added red Stickles to her jewelry and Ice White Pearl Pen accents to the strand of pearls on the ground.   The only embellishment I added was the red satin bow.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog and feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations from the Digi Bells and my co-GDT, Linda!  We hope you will play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly (use a bow and a die)
Crafting For All Seasons #69 (for the girls)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you soon!
