Creative Belli Challenge #133

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge. This is the last one for 2011 and also the last one for me. I am leaving this design team as of December 31. Something else is coming but more about that in January.

This challenge is all about "Merry Christmas".  You have to have the word "Christmas" on your card. The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments! Everyone is welcome to play along! Challenge a stamping friend! Just follow the theme.

For my card I used an image from  the stamp set "Christmas light" from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. It has a matching die so the cutting out of the image is super easy.

I used the Cheery Lynn die 'deco border light". I love this die. I think it makes for such an elegan card.
I also used the Spellbinder "lacy circle" for my candle image.

My old and forgotten part is paper from my stash. I had this BoBunny green striped designer paper and I was able to use it on this card. I found the perfect shade of gold to match it. The red border and circle are Stampin-Up's real red cardstock.

I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I stamped the word "peace" on the candle from another set I had. No name on that one.

Well that's my card for today. Hope you will join in on the challenge at the Creative Belli Blog.

Some other challenges:

1.  Creative Card Crew has the lights of Christmas challenge.
2.  Papertake Weekly has a last Christmas card of the year challenge.
3.  Top Tip Tuesday has an anything Christmas challenge.
4.  Cheery Lynn Designs has a "tis the season" challenge. I used the deco light border die.
