Creative Belli #108 Snow

For the Creative Belli Challenge -for the next two weeks- we want to see SNOW.

  Here is a close-up of the shimmery glistening snow......(lol).... I painted the snow with Creative Inspirations (Fairy Dust) Paint. I used a digital image and sentiment from Create with TLC and the sentiment was dissected to meet the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge- I used the sentiment where the buttons are on the sketch. You cannot see the subtle sky sponges with a scallop punch and Soft Sky ink. The DSP is Jovial by Basic Grey. I used a rub on (on vellum) for my snowflake and added small white rub-on snowflakes to the background for dimension.
 The Premise of the Belli challenge is to use your old and forgotten embellishments.  I used the swirly rhinestones I purchased ages ago- in fact- this may be my first card with swirly sparkle- kind of fun!

A beautiful card - but WHY is snow so much nicer on pictures than it is when you have to drive in it?

This is absolutely adorable! I love your take on the sketch. The word art was a great substitution for the "buttons" on the sketch. The shimmer on the snow is really beautiful as well. It's a very sweet card. Thanks for playing along with the MMSC! Hope to see you back next week.

Happy New Year,

Joanne Gilch said...

cute little image and this card is gorgeous!!

Dawn Edwards said...

Beautiful Card! I love all the subtle details. The twine tree up the right side was a great touch. Cutting up your sentiment was a clever way to replace the button element of the sketch.
Thanks for playing along with the Midnight Madness Challenge this week. I hope you join us again next week.
