Elzy's Traditional red, green and gold Christmas challenge




Time for another Elzybell Blog challenge! I love this one because well, I'm a "tradtional" Christmas sorta girl. We had to use red, green and gold for our colors. I went w/ this tree which I watercolored using kiwi, artichoke and hunter green. What can I say, I wanted a lot of dimension?! The 3 little ornaments have some MS glitter on them and the star was colored in w/ a gold gel pen. I also watercolored a little saffron ink around the whole thing for extra *pop*. The top part of the larger white layer, above the scalloped artichoke layer, was cuttlebugged w/ my swirl embossing folder. I added some gold eyelets to put some extra *goldness* (ok, I know that is NOT a word!) on the card. Finished off w/ one of Elzy's cute sentiments.

Ok, can I just share how excited I am about all the new stuff coming your way from Elzybell??!!! Sorry, I can't say anymore than that, but let's just say it's going to be a *FUN* new year! Thank for stopping by! Go check out all of the dt's creations at Elzybell's blog and remember, Elizabeth still has her advent contest going on, so after you've looked at all the *eye candy*, scroll down a bit and enter to win!!!
