Christmas Belle

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

I just love how this Christmas card turned out. I wasn't sure about using the brown and pink combination on a Christmas card. But once it was done I just fell in love with it. Here's my card, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. The image is called "Christmas Belle" and it is a free digi download at Wendy's Digital Doodling.

This is for 5 challenges:

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #14 : The challenge this week was to create a card using Pink & Brown as the main colors. Add Ribbon and some glitter. I know that it is hard to see in the picture, but if you look very closely at the pink on her jacket and the snowflakes you will see that they sparkle. I added cotton candy stickles to give the sparkle it needed.

Winter Wonderland Week #22: The challenge this week was an OPEN THEME challenge.

Creative Card Crew Challenge #34: SNOWFLAKES

Simon Says Stamp ALL THAT SPARKLES: Create a card or project using anything that sparkles. Glitter, glimmer mist, gems, pearls, ribbon, stickles... the list is endless. As much sparkle as you can put into one creation.

Cup Cake Craft Week #63: Create a card using the provided sketch:
