Creative Belli Challenge #134-Snowflakes

  The Creative Belli Challenge for the next two weeks, January 4th - 17th, 2012 is


 SNOWFLAKES!
(you must have at least 1 snowflake on your card) 
   My recent trip to Breckenridge encouraged this card....my son is a ski instructor there, and he wears this blue color snowsuit when he is teaching.  I have not used this Riley stamp in ages.....and I used some gingham ribbon and a snowflake charm that I had to dust off...... I colored the image with Copic Markers.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!
I used a Technique Junkies technique on my card called Chalked Emboss- so the background looks soft and then I highlighted the embossing for a 'pop'. I used a digi sentiment from Create with TLC- there is going to be a HUGE party at Create with TLC soon- the counter is just shy of 1500 followers on her blog......!!!  Wahoo!  I cannot wait!
This is about the only way I am seeing snowflakes this year .....West of Chicago- we have not had any snow to speak of this year at all...and the forecast for this weekend is in the 40's.......
 When you upload your challenge card to any gallery (Splitcoast, CDAC, etc....), please use keyword CBC134
  We have some new DT members- and the inspiration is fabulous- please check out the Creative Belli Blog for links to their cards!

Challenges I am submitting my card to:
Anything Goes- Blue plus one other color
Digital Tuesday- Winter Wonderland (sentiment digi)
Sweet Stamps- Winter
Crazy Amigo's- Winter
Mark's Finest Papers- Use snowflakes

Thanks for stopping by!
