Jingle Bells

Cath gave us 5 separate challenges at the Moxie Fab World's Handmade Cards Week, and this is the one I haven't entered yet: General Craft Supplies.  After lusting after this Impression Obsession pine branch die for more than a year it is finally mine, and I decided to tie up 2 sprigs with a gingham bow and some little jingle bells for this challenge.

I glued them all to a recycled paper card base, then stamped a sentiment from my favorite Hero Arts clear set from last year, Miracle of the Holidays, stamped in Red Royal ink, the perfect Christmas red!  And I couldn't resist adding some pretty red pearls to the mix to draw your eye down to the sentiment.



 Thanks for visiting me today!  I'll see you again tomorrow with 2 more Christmas cards for Simon Says Stamp, and on Thursday we start our week of Christmas previews at The Craft's Meow!  So if you're in the mood for Christmas, I'll have it for you!
