WT 189 and Belli Challenge #39 and some BIG news!!!

I had time to make another card for today's challenge on Splitcoast and the Belli Challenge #39 to use pearls...gotta love those days full of stamping!! I wanted to use the Wassail paper from Basic Grey, so out came the Christmas Poinsettias stamps designed by Chris Dickinson for Sweet and Sassy Stamps. The wreath and ribbon were stamped twice with Riding Hood Red and Versamark onto Whisper White cs and embossed with clear ep. All the images were colored with ink pads and an aqua pen, the flower parts of one image and one of the bows were cutout and attached over the other images with dimensionals. The pearls were added for the Belli challenge on Chrissy's (chrissyd723) blog, the beautiful gold ribbon was from the Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, the pearls were from Flourishes, LLCand the sentiment stamp was from the Fanciful Flakes stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.
BTW, I was asked by Chris Dickinson to be on the Belli Challenge Team...Whoooohoo!!!!!! Chris hosts a challenge each week on her blog to use embellishments that have been sitting around unused and unloved. Thanks, Chrissy, I am soo excited. She has a great team of designers and I think one of them is super special because she is my daughter, Holly Brown (hbrown). How cool is that!!!!!
Thanks for visiting and have a great night!!!
