Creative Belli Challenge #122

Hello everyone!! Hope all is going well with you today!! Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge for this two weeks is a Christmas inspiration challenge. Our inspiration piece is this beautiful Christmas china that belongs to our design team member, Karen Wallace. Thank you Karen for providing us with such lovely inspiration to create our cards and projects.
The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!



For my card, I colored the wreath image from Flourishes Christmas Wreath set with copics and the sentiment is from Flourishes christmas classics set. The wood bird from KaiserCraft, seam binding, pearl brad, and the punched corners finish it off. Yeaaaaa, another Christmas card for my stash!!!
Recipe: Stamps: Flourishes, Paper: White, Black, Stampin Up! dp, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Accessories: Martha Stewart Corner Punch, Seam Binding, Pearl Brad, Copics

Hi Joan, I'm sorry I haven't been round for a while, I needed a bit of time off and since I've been back I find there's a lot to catch up on! But I've been and left comments for all the cards you posted while I've been AWOL, didn't want to miss out on seeing any, lol.

this is really lovely, I can see how the photo inspired you. Your colouring is so rich, those oranges are shaped and shaded BEAUTIFULLY. Hope all is well with you and the family. CoB

Joan, your card is beautiful! I love cardinals and greenery at Christmas. In fact, any day I see a cardinal is a good day and since they visit our feeders I am daily bless by these little red angels! On this day of 100 degree temps your card brought a welcome feeling of crisp winter!
