Jingle Bells/Belles

We're celebrating BELLS at Jingle Belles this fortnight, so break out the sleigh bells, the church bells and of course the jingle bells and make a card with us!

all papers are authentique holiday selection from various years, purchased at paper anthology; brads and bling: eyelet outlet; 25 sticker: idea-ology; holly: prima; corner rounder: we r memory keepers; frayed burlap distress ink for edges: ranger; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, glue dots

This card took an embarrassingly long time to make, considering it consists only of panels of Authentique patterned paper from my lss, Paper Anthology (who, btw, have just added an awesome online storefront!) which you would think would seriously limit how much dithering a person (even me!) could do. But alas, no. I fell in love with this week's awesome Sketch Saturday (#608) and became obsessed with finding exactly the right image to go in each shape. Note to self: lighten up!!! Having said all of that, I am really pleased with the result and there are worse things than wallowing for an hour or so in your collection of beautiful holiday papers, right?

Hop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's lovely card and start planning how YOU will "ring in" this challenge!
