Christmas Bells

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday.  This week, Sue has challenged us to create a card featuring Christmas bells.


For my card, I first had to find an image featuring Christmas bells!  As soon as I spied this image in the Jolly Follies set, I knew what I wanted to do.  



I cut a tag, then stamped and colored this adorable little mouse.  For the blue panels, I sponged Island Blue ink onto white cardstock.  I then white embossed some of the ultra-modern snowflakes from Freshly Fallen and cut the panel into three strips.  The tag is raised up on foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped in black and Island Blue ink.




Thanks so much for visiting.  Please head over to Merry Monday to check out the rest of the design team's inspiration.


Products used:

Stamps:  Jolly Follies (Penny Black), Christmas (SSS), Freshly Fallen (PTI)
Ink:  Island Blue (SSS), Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  White Baker's Twine, Lil' Inkers Anytime Tags die, White EP, Copics

Cheers
Karren

This couldn't be any cuter, Karren! What a sweet little mouse ringing the bells! Love those snowflakes and I'm in awe that you've mounted the 3 so perfectly. I always get one wonky (at least one). Hope you have a wonderful week!
