White card challenge

How are your Christmas card making going?  I still have a few to make, but I have completed my card orders, which I am very happy about.  I think I will continue to work on Christmas cards until the end of the year, then whatever I don't send out I will have towards next year's orders.

I was excited about this weeks challenge - All white card - because there is just something about an all white card - the clean crisp look of it, lots of white open space that I love.

So for my card today I'm using another Christmas image (are you surprised??) lol. I pulled out Holly in jar. Although I did colour this image last year, I thought the simplicity of the image would look great on an all white background especially with the red berries. So without further ado here it is:

After stamping it on bella's bestest paper, I coloured it with Copics.  Cut it out using a square s/binder die, then layered in onto another piece of white which was cut out using the fleur de lis s/binder die.  This is similar to my card I posted on Tuesday.  Finished off with white liquid pearls, glitter and some tiny pearls.

Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella to check out all the other gorgeous entries - lots of inspiration to be seen.  While there leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks and Emily is doubling up on the bella bucks this week, so you have a chance to win $20 instead of $10!!

For our challenge next week, we have another great sketch designed by another talented babe - Robinbella. We love to see you join us next week, for our last challenge of 2011, so be sure to email Emily your card by thursday night.   There will be some bella bucks up for grabs, and  Emily is doubling up the anti - she is giving away $40 instead of $20 - pretty cool eh?   Here is your sketch for next week:

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
