Jingle All the Way

Happy Wednesday! I believe we are in for a warm up toward the end of this week but today was still kind of chilly. I did walk a couple miles at lunch time. It was nice to get outside and get a little exercise. Half way through the week and heading toward the weekend. I think my weekend is fairly clear of events so I am hoping for crafty time. Last night I got a little crafty time. I made another Christmas card for 2016.

I made this card for several challenges. The image is from a retired Gina K set called Very Merry Christmas. I die cut the image with My Favorite Things Cross Stitched Oval Stax. I backed the image with Spellbinder's Beaded Ovals. The background is black card stock. I added stripes of red and white washi tape and three self-adhesive gem stones. The jingle bells are covered with glossy accents. It gives the card some texture. The sentiment was created on the computer and fussy cut. I used the sketch from 12 Months of Christmas Link Up and the theme at the HLS Christmas challenge as inspiration.


I am entering these challenges:

Hope you are enjoying your week. Thanks for stopping by and checking out what I've been up to.

Hi Donna, Kudos to you for taking a walk in the cold air! We've had a bit of cold, but the days have been filled with crisp air & beautiful sunshine. This is a delightful card, and I was so happy to see you joined in with the HLS Jan Christmas Jingle Bells challenge. Good luck at winning the stamp set! The card is so pretty with the stitched white oval showing off this set of silver bells and red ribbon, and I love the S/B die with the red. Looks just grand on that black background, and of course the elegant pearl trim with the patterned washi strips. Well done. TFS & Hugs. Hope the Year is off to a good start for you.

Hi Donna, Not sure if my first comment will publish, but I'll try again! Apologies if you get it 2x! Kudos to you for taking a walk in the cold...and so pleased to see that you joined in the HLS January Christmas Jingle Challenge. This is such a pretty card with the silver bells presented on the white stitched oval. It looks great with the red S/B oval against the black bkgrnd. Love the addition of the patterned washi and the elegant pearls. TFS & Thanks for joining in with HLS January Christmas Challenge. Hope the Year is off to a good start for you. Hugs

I'm so glad you joined us to get a jump start on next Christmas with this lovely card. I really love how the red pops off the black base card and the glossy accents on the jingle bells is a great touch.
Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers and I hope you will play along again soon.
