Jingle Bells

Christmas bells are another style I am lacking in my stamp range, so for this card I had to stretch my imagination and was inspired by an old commercial Christmas card sent to me (secretly I have bags of old cards, not sure why I'm saving them, but they come in handy for ideas and cutting up). I inked my Christmas swirls embossing folder and then embossed it - I love how the slight colour makes the raised embossing 'pop'.  Then I die cut my sentiment from old cards and rescued my silver bells to reuse too. Finished the card with a bright blue layer and some silver thread for the bells.  I'm playing along with the challenge at Jingle Belles - Those Christmas Bells...   
Thanks for taking a peek

Christmas Bells, Those Christmas Bells ...
