Bellariffic sketch #24

Hello to all my cyber friends.  Can you believe this is the last day of November?  Wow, this year has flown by hasn't it?

You are probably here today for the Bellariffic challenge, so lets get to it.

This week we had a sketch to follow,  a fairly easy one at that.  Yes, I'm still plugging away at my Christmas cards, so what better image to fit this weeks sketch are the circle images.  I choose to use  polar bear circle.

Starting with bella's bestest paper, I stamped the polar bear using black memento.  I pulled out my copics to colour the image, shading was done with pencils and gamsol.

Designer paper is Memory Box Yuletide - (you probably noticed the candy canes are going the wrong way on my card - oops, I cut it wrong).  I must say Memory Box as the most prettiest papers, I have a hard time using them! I used a snowflake cuttlebug folder for the green square piece and then lightly rubbed my versamagic white ink pad over the embossed area - because the green is a light colour paper it's hard to see the white.

Glitter, glossy accents (nose), ribbon and baubles where my finishing touches. 

For some more great inspiration, hop over to bloggabella and check out all the entries for this week.  Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Our challenge next week is create a tag.  It can be a tag on a card, or just a gift tag - use your creativeness, then send Emily your submission by thursday night for it to appear on Bloggabella on friday.  This also gives you a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.

Are you a big Uptown Girl fan? Well I will be back tomorrow with a new card to share with you, featuring one of the newest uptown girl images.

Also, Elaineabella has set up a challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers.  There is some great prizes, you can read all about it here. 

Well that about wraps it up for today.  Enjoy your weekend. 

See you tomorrow, Pauline

Hi, Pauline! Your's are some of the cards I missed the most during my hiatus. This is soooo pretty. I have the Yuletide paper but haven't cut into it yet. You combined very sweet colors on this with an equally sweet image. Thanks so much for greeting me upon my return.

Pauline, that is so soft and pretty! Just love your take on the sketch and the embossing really makes it pop!

Oh how pretty Pauline! I love the softness of this - perfect card for a baby's first Christmas or anyone, really, it's so lovely! I must get some of that paper - Dana used it on her Ramona card and I commented too - love those candy canes!
