WSC99 - CC238 Sleigh Bells Ring

Our weather here in Michigan has certainly taken a turn towards fall, the last few days have been cool, rainy and windy perfect for staying inside and sipping hot tea. That's exactly what I've been doing because over the weekend I've caught a cold.
Today's card is for two challenges the first is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge and the second is for the Color Challenge over on SCS. I used the stamp set Sleigh Bells Ring and with the colors from the color challenge being Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow I decided to try and give my card a victorian feel. I stamped the Pretty in Pink panel with my Bella Toile and sponged the edges then stamped the Sage Shadow bottom section of my card with the trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and sponged the edges as well. The snow scene was stamped in Basic Grey and I washed in all three colors using my aqua brush and then added a ton of Dazzling Diamonds (click on the photo below for a closer view).

The Simple Snowflake was stamped in Pretty in Pink, glittered and layered together with the retired Snow Blossom punch and button with silver cord.


Supplies: Sleigh Bells Ring, Bella Toile, Lovely as a Tree, Simple Snowflake, Snowflake punches, Nesties, Ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Pink button, Piercer, Dazzling Diamonds, Aqua brush, Pop dots, Silver cord, Sponge.

Simply lovely Lynn! A definite Victorian feel to the card. I really like the trees at the bottom of the card. Just fills in the bottom so nicely w/out distracting from the image.
