Bellariffic sketch #18

Hi my blogging friends.  I'm back today for another Bellariffic challenge, this time it is a sketch - don't you love sketches? Here is the sketch we had to follow:
and here is my card:

I'm still trying to get at least one Christmas card done each week, so I pulled out one of my favourite Stamping Bella lines - called the Peeps!  This particular image is called Christmas Peeps.  I stamped the image on bella's bestest paper, then coloured  using copics and primsacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.

DP is by Cosmo Cricket - Jolly by Golly. I just happened to find some scrap pieces of green, and teal c/s in my scrap basket that co-ordinated with the DP.

Dies used: spellbinders rectangle, EK Success border punch. For the embossed background I used my new spellbinder m-bossabilities reversing embossing folder called - Holiday Magic.

For the sentiment I used Happy Holidays, which you can find here.

Finished off with glossy accents on the tree ornaments, and lots of glitter around the tree.  I also added a snowflake brad.

Next weeks challenge is "use buttons or bows (ribbon)" on your card - pretty easy eh?  If you get a chance to play along, then email Emily your card by thursday night.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by today.
