A Pat-a-cake Christmas????

Wow, I'm just loving that title!!!  Well why not play Pat-A-Cake on Christmas?  I just had to make a Christmas card to show off.  I love taking Elisabeth Bells Digi's and finding ways to tie them into a Christmas card.  I especially LOVE the vintage feel of this one!

I shared this card over on The Digi Bells blog today, and thought I'd show it here as well.  What do you think, does it have that vintage feel to you?

I'm not quite sure what it is about it, whether it is the deep green and reds with the gold or what, but after coloring this adorable image, I sat back and said.... "Ohhhhh I LOVE it" 
In the background I used the Christmas Tree from last years Belles 'n Whistles Christmas release.  I love combining Elisabeths digi's with stamps from the companies that she licenses to.  You can find all of her Digital Images HERE!

But yes, yes about this adorable Pat-a-cake image.  I still remember when I first laid my eyes on these cuties, and then got to use it.  I NEVER imagined it in Christmas colors, it was pastel blues all the way.  BUT wow, don't they look awesome as a Christmas image?

okay I know I can't help myself falling in love with them.  After all Elisabeth drew them, so who Wouldn't Love them?  They are irresistible.

I hope you are all ready for something spectacular, because later this week The Digi Bells will be having a Blog Hop which of course will reveal this months newest Digi release.  Believe me, you are going to FALL in LOVE!!!  Make sure to be there on Friday the 19th.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've enjoyed a little bit of inspiration, Elisabeth Bell style!!!  =)
