Last challenge of the year

Hi everyone!  So glad it's friday, it's been a busy week, working lots of overtime at work because of year end.  I still have a couple more Christmas cards to get out in the mail as well.

Yes this is our last Bellariffic friday challenge for 2011.  We have lots of great ideas for 2012 challenges as well.  This weeks challenge was a sketch done by Robinbella! Love this layout.  I pulled out another new image I have yet to colour up, and this one is called - cupcake with a holly on top.

Wasn't quite sure what colour I was suppose to colour the balls on the cupcake, so I just went for it.  Eveything was coloured with prismacolour pencils on bella's bestest paper.  For the small gold balls I used my gold krylon pen.  DP is by Echo Park - Season's Greetings.

Finished it off with some glossy accents on the red berries, and added glitter to the green balls.  You can see along the bottom of the cupcake all that sparkle (well I hope you can see it, don't know how well the camera picked it up) anyway it is diamond dust- it's finely ground glass - love this stuff, need to use it more.
I also added a die cut holly branch under the image.

Don't forget if you didn't get a chance to participate in this weeks challenge, you can still hop over to bloggabella and leave a comment.  Emily is giving away bonus bella bucks this week.

Our next friday challenge begins on Jan13/2012 and for those who would like to get a head start over the holidays I have posted below the sketch for you.

Thanks for coming by today, have a great weekend!

You have me chuckling over here...It's art sistah, that means you can choose to color it to your heart's desire...and your choice is lovely! The addition of the holly berry vine and postage stamp matt and all that sparkle are awesome! Hmmm I don't have this stamp yet...it might have to find it's way onto my wish list.

I just love these whimsical Bella stamps. One of these days when I get all caught up on the stamps I haven't used yet (in my dreams) I hope to go on a little Bella shopping trip. Cards like yours inspire me. This cupcake is so cute! I think those balls can be any color your heart desires. Love how you colored it!
