Sneak peek #3

Hi blogging friends!  Ah it's the weekend again - don't you just love it? Welcome back to another bellariffic friday.  This weeks challenge was to use BLING on your card, and I did just that.

For my card today I'm also show casing another NEW image - this one is called Reindeer and Trees - another beautiful image by Krista Schneider soon to be out in rubber by Stamping Bella - (I think the release date is Oct 1.)

For my image I used copics and then did shading with pencils.  The blue background was done by sponging versamagic sea breeze around the image.  I then layered this onto a piece of soft suede c/s and then chocolate brown, then stitched around the image.

For the layers behind I used a Spellbinder snowflake die to cut a piece of cream shimmer c/s  and a MFT harlequin die for the red border at the bottom. DP is Basic Grey - Aspen Frost.

Then the BLING  - rhinestones on the peaks of the harlequin die, on the star and on the reindeers nose, then lots of glitter every where else.

Want to see some more sparkle? Then hop over to bloggabella and check out all the beautiful creations the others have done.  Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

So for next weeks challenge we are back to a sketch.  You can email your card to Emily by thursday night to be included on bloggabella on friday, this will also get you in the running for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.  Here is the sketch to follow:

If you want to see some more sneak peaks, be sure to check out the other babes as well as bloggabella.  Emily has been posting them there as well. 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by.

OOh I'm loving this new image! You card has the perfect amount of "blingness" - I just adore his red nose and that MFT die with the bling is lovely!! So SO pretty!
