Bellariffic friday - Group Hug

Happy Friday!  I'm excited about this weekend and with good reason.   I'm going on my first retreat with 7 other ladies from our church choir.  We are heading up near Guelph to Crieff Hills.  I've also been asked it I would do a card making class with them.  Should be fun, I don't think any of them has ever stamped before.  I'll let you know how they did!

So now onto my card.  I'm in desperate need of getting Christmas cards done so I decided on these cute little snowman known as Group Hug. I bought this stamp last year but never got a chance to ink it up.

 I stamped the snowmen on
bella's bestest paper with black memento
ink and colored with my prisma color pencils and blended with gamsol (OMS).
I pulled out my circle nesties to cut out the image, leaving the die on I sponged some versamagic sea breeze and some versamagic white around the image.
I also used my lacey circle die for the darker aqua layer.  DP paper is from last years Cosmo Cricket.  Added some glitter to the snowman and some Marble Jade bella dots to the corners.
I also did some stitching on the card to finish it off.

For those who want to get a jump start on next weeks challenge, the theme is 1,2,3- what's that you ask? well it's 1 image, 2 pattern papers and 3 embellishments.  Sounds easy eh? So put your thinking cap on and get creating, then email your card to Emily by 5 on thursday.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
