old and new, take 2

we're just about halfway through the first ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ challenge of 2016, in which we're making lovely holiday cards which incorporate both "something old AND something new". here's what i made this week:

patterned paper: kaiser + vintage sheet music; seriously olllllld blue textured cardstock from jam paper and envelope; snowflake punches: ek success and papersource; brads: recollections and mme; sentiment die: kaiser; blue poinsettia: from a christmas garland purchased at michaels; lace from my stash; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine 

for my "something(s) new" i've used three papers from kaisercraft's gorgeous "silver bells" collection that miss june sent me, plus the cool new "merry christmas" die that i may have treated myself to after xmas from paper anthology. everything else is "something old" including some vintage sheet music and lace. 

if you love mixing old stuff and new stuff as much as i do, why not join us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you can get a jump on your 2016 holiday cards at the same time? be sure to check out stephanie's fabulous card, too, and leave her some love!
