CBC45 - Christmas!

You know what they say...Wednesday again! heehee. Well that means it's time for the Belli Challenge! If you're not familiar with the challenge, belli is short for embellishment - each week our challenge founder, Chris, chooses an embellishment or theme for us to showcase. This week is #45 and the challenge is CHRISTMAS (keyword CBC45 on Splitcoast). You can visit Chris's blog for more details and to link up your creations for a chance to win a prize and have your project spotlighted on Chris's blog! The rest of the Belli DT has inspiration for you too, and their blog links are in my left sidebar.

For my card - I knew I had to get out my new stamp from Impression Obsession. I've wanted to order from them for a long time and I finally treated myself to a couple of images, which just arrived on Monday. I stamped this Holiday Margarita in Real Red and colored it with my Copics. I added some Celery Shimmerz over the top of the drink and some Opal Shimmerz over the top of the floating gifts. I stamped the image again in black, colored and cut out the tree and added it with dimensionals. Had to put on some little rhinestones of course, and a glittery star brad. Also have some red pearls as the holly berry garnish on the right. Chunky salt glitter on the rim and viola! You can see the full-size picture with more detail by clicking on it, above. {Yeah, it's blurry once again, sorry. We haven't seen sun in several days so I don't have my perfect photo spot - gotta make do with overcast skies and incandescent lighting. I will try to retake it today if the sun comes out!}

16 people made my day!:
