A bit of snow

Ah, Friday at last, which means another Bellariffic challenge.  This weeks theme is snow - pretty simple eh?

 The Stamping Bella image I used is called Door with Wreath by Mo! I can tell you this was a very fast and simple image to color up, it took me twice as long to come up with the layout.

Isn't it pretty?  I just love it.  Love the white space around the door, just so crisp and clean looking.

Okay onto the card - as usual I stamped with black memento ink on
bella's bestest paper and colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. After cutting it down to size I layered it on to some light blue and dark grey bazzill c/s and then stitched around the edge.  The DP paper is from Memory Box - Dewfrost collection- I think it was from last year.  For the snow I added some liquid applique and sprinkled glitter on it while it was wet.  I did not heat set it this time.  I didn't want the snow to be too puffy, so just left it as is.  I also added some small little dots of liquid applique on the wreath - hard to see in the picture though and added some glitter as well.
Finished it all with a piece of dark teal satin ribbon.

Next's week bellariffic challenge theme is Giftabella - make a gift or a gift card. 
Email your card/project to Emily by thursday night for a chance to win some bella bucks!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Girl - we are definately on the same wave length as I did this image last week. And after reading your comment to me I am convinced that you are my twin! It would explain our health, career paths - even our creative outlet and image choices (think you even have a daughter the same age as mine) - too freaky and yet wonderful! No wonder I love peeking into your cupboard! Beauuuutiful card!
