Digi Bells DT Card

Happy Monday E Bell Friends!!!! I am posting a card today for The Digi Bell's DT Blog using the adorable "Letters to Santa" digi image by Elisabeth Bell!!!  Which can be found in EBell's Digital Collection Here
Created my card using this sketch from Elphine House Australia Challenge #10

Letters to Santa was colored with Copics and pastel pencils.  Snowflakes or should I say snowballs made with frosted lace stickles and then topped with Viva Decor white transparent pen.  Gave ground cover the snow glistening effect with frosted lace stickles.  Inked edges with TH walnut stain.  Papers were SU green cardstock, Gold textured cardstock and MF Decks the Halls pad.  Matted image with SB Labels 22 nestie cut out of green cs.  Snowflake sentiment made with..... BG Sizzix snowflake, EK Success snowflakes, SU small oval punch and SU Fabulous Phrases "thanks" stamp.  Finished card with green pearls from stash, Wild Orchid pearls, lace, Zva pearl swirl and ribbons.

Hope you can find time to play along in our November Digi Release Challenge--you can use any EB image ~~~ the challenge is "Anything Goes"~~ you have until Dec 22 and you could be the lucky winner of EBell's newest digi image called Creative Genius!!
