Letter to Santa



Welcome to the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection November Release / Blog Hop.

Hopefully, you arrived here from Christel's blog.  If not CLICK HERE to be taken to the beginning of the hop.  

This little sweetheart is called Letter's to Santa and she's my hands down favorite from the entire digital collection!!  Now I know you're gonna want her so CLICK HERE to be taken to purchase yours.  
 But if you'd like to win her, here's what you need to do.  

* Complete the blog hop and leave comments on each DT members blogs
AND
*  Create a Christmas card using any Elisabeth Bell image and post it on the Digi Bell Blog.  BUT you will only have until Saturday evening to submit your card.


  I was stressing over the coloring so much that I didn't expect to like it when I was finished, but hhis has got to be my most favorite card EVER!!  I used VersaMagic Chalk Ink to create the snowy sky background.  For the snow I used Shimmerz (it gives the perfect amount of sparkle without overdoing it like Stickles can sometimes).  And if you could see this in real life, I think you'd agree with me that the snow on the ground looks like you could hear the icy crunch as she walks in it.  I also used Shimmerz on the cuffs of her outfit for a touch of sparkle.  I added a little book embellishment that you can write inside, rather than a sentiment.

I think she'll have a wonderful Christmas morning don't you?  With a sweet little face like that; I'm sure Santa will be bringing her everything on her list!!

  Don't forget to leave me a comment (please) before you visit PATI who is your next stop on the hop.

What a beautiful card. The image is so cute and Christmassy!

Paula said...

The colouring is astonishing - but I sympathize wholeheartedly about stressing over it. Love your sky & the snow detail. The red is just enough to provide a perfect foil for that lovely aqua & the accenting effect of the spotted paper & the pearls in highlighting the falling snow of the digi image is great. I particularly like how you've coloured in inside of that little mouse's umbrella dark aqua to match the paper for the eye is drawn to him. The more I looked the more I saw - the way that little label/book tag is layered with the image panel & the ribbon tail falling within is lovely.
Have a lovely weekend.
