One Card - 2 Challenges

Got in one of those moods were I just couldn't color or play enough in the craft room. Wish I had these spells more  This is a card I created for a couple of challenges using another Elizabeth Bell image that I've had for a couple of years.  Isn't she gorgeous!  Chose the colors for this card as I was listening to Elvis sing "I'll Have A Blue Christmas Without You" so there came the inspiration to do a blue and white card.

I've used the sketch from The Beary Scrap Design Challenge Blog and the project isn't due till 12/14/10, so I think I'm gonna make  The second challenge I'm entering this card for is Copic Creations and the challenge is "Light Source" also due 12/14/10. 
Image is Willow With Lantern by Elizabeth Bell and from Whiff of Joy - Colored with copics and highlighted with Stickles - The DP is from my stash of last year (clueless as to the manufacturer) - Poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts with Stickles added and a blue gem for the center - The flourish is Mayan chipboard, sprayed with adhesive and then covered in crystal glitter.

That's it from me for today.  If you have the time to leave me a little comment it will be very much appreciated and then I'll pop on over to see what's new with you and your blog. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! "Hugs" Carol

Wow Carol, this one is so elegant !! How do you do it ??? The coloring, the glitter everything is so glamourous.
Carol, thank you for your visit to my blog, doodlebuddies. I am so glad you visited me. I wish you would have also come to Dubai with your grandson and grand-daughterinlaw. Dubai is a beautiful and modern city, unlike how it is perceived as being very conservative etc. Will post some pics about the city, one of these days, so you guys can view it too.
Thank you again for visiting. And please know, that I am one of you biggest fans :)
Much love
