Christmas Bells

Good morning.  It's time for our Christmas Card Club challenge once again.  I have missed the last two challenges.  I really want to get back into crafting but haven't had the heart really but this seemed like a good time to make the effort.  Margaret chose "Jingle Bells".  I hope she feels my Christmas Bells is okay.                                      

My Card

7" square card - Anna Marie Crafts
Green pearlescent card - from stash
Ring Out Those Bells die - Crafters Companion Die'sire
Classic Oval dies - Spellbinders
Sentiment - JustRite

I haven't used this Create A Card die for a few years and I thought it would make a very easy starting point for me. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it then rubbed some green ink over to tie in with the ink used on the large die.  A wooden embellishment and some red pearls were all it took.

This is not actually due until tomorrow but I will be posting a card for another DT then (what I call a "Blue Peter card!" you'll understand what I mean if you look in again tomorrow!))

Take care and enjoy your weekend.
