Jingle Bells


I hope you're having a great Sunday. It is a cloudy day here and I'm longing for the hot days of summer and lots of sunshine. I guess I'll be waiting for quite a while. 

This is a card I made last week for the CAS302 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was The First Noel....add music to your cards.

I used a Martha Stewart punch to do the jingle bells. They are hanging on strips of cardstock. I have later added bows made with musical cardstock...placed at the top of the jingle bells. I just didn't want to do another photo so you have to imagine this in your mind's eye. :-) Anyway, I think I like it better this way.

Recipe:
Stamps-Stampabilities/Jingle Bells
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Bazzill rock candy cs, Stampin'Up! Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cs
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black

I'm glad to know I am not the only one to add things after I've photographed them or even posted them. I really like this card just the way it is so the additions would only enhance it more. Great job. Happy Sunday.
