A sneak peek - Ring Christmas Bells!

Hello friends!  

Today I'm sharing a card that gives you a sneak peek of  one of my favorite of the September release from ODBD.  This set is called Jingle Bells.  I love this image and of course... the sentiment is wonderful!  I used a base of black and layered white and brushed gold, embossing the white layer with a Cuttlebug holly stripes folder.  The lower edge is cut with Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders, and the sentiment is cut with an ODBD Elegant Oval, and matted with a Spellbinders Lattice Motifs die.  I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored with Copics.  I stamped two images so I could pop up one set of bells over the first for dimension.  I then tucked them in around the sentiment.  The white snow has glitter added.  A simple sheer red ribbon finished it off.



Thanks so much for stopping by~  I love knowing you were there!!!
