Elisabeth Bell - Christmas Bells

Merry Christmas everyone!  

Firstly I would like to wish all my followers new and old, a very merry Christmas and I hope you have had a wonderful day!

I'm spending a quiet Christmas day with my partner, but seeing family tomorrow, so I'll be having the big Christmas meal then.

Well it may be Christmas, but it's business as usual over on the Digi Bells Challenge Blog and the theme this time is 'Winter Wonderland'.  Well I must admit that when I made this card I had 'Christmas' firmly in my head rather then 'Winter', and made my card with alternative Christmas colours that are actually quite 'hot' and not overly wintery lol. But lucyly I added plenty of frantage to create a snowy effect and I think that just about saves it hehe.

Anyway this is the card I made.

I used the gorgeous Christmas Bells , this is available from Elisabeth's website by clicking on the link. I coloured her with my distress inks and chose some lovely bright colours to match my chosen papers. I used the following markers:
Vintage Photo, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Victorian Velvet, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen


I paired her with some Whimsy Papers that I've had in my stash for a while now, I've lost the front of the pack so I can't actually remember what this pack was called.  I also used some bright pink cardstock and embossed it with a Winter embossing folder I had.....and then of course being me I promptly hid most of the embossing with embellishments .....sigh.


I added flowers from my stash and charms and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.
I also added one of Kay Fatula's beautiful butterflies because the colours matched perfectly.

I do hope you can join in with our challenge.

That's all from me today, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my Christmas Day!

Christmas Hugs :) xx
