Merry Monday #193 - Bells

Hello friends.  Playing along with the challenge at Merry Monday, where Linda has chosen for us to use bells on our Christmas cards.  Back in December I received the sweetest little stamp set from Deepti (Stamplorations) called Christmas Bell Medley, and it worked out perfectly for this challenge!  Take a look:




I started with an older Darice embossing folder and sponged on Blueberry Sky ink to make the words pop a bit more.  Next I embossed and fussy cut the bells, pine boughs, and bow and attached to the to the embossed layer.  I used a piece of speckled navy blue cs and die cut a stitched circle to layer over the embossed layer, and then attached that to a white card base.  Very simple, but I think the silver embossing along with the embossed words, really make this an elegant card! 

There's still plenty of time to play along, so go check out all the great inspiration and play along right HERE.


Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
