Christmas Foilage

It's time for another challenge over at the Jingle Belle blog, wooohooo! I love Christmas and making Christmas cards so I have fallen so in love with this blog. Check them out and get ahead on your Christmas cards!

 This weeks challenge was inspired by holly and ivy and we're told to incorporate Christmas foliage into our card. For some reason this challenge had me stuck for a bit but I finally got going and I'm happy with the way my card turned out. The bells are popped up with dimensionals to give the card some dimension and although you cant really see it in the picture I put gold accents on the bells also. I used stickles on the holly berries above the bell for a little sparkle.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Bells and Boughs
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Deck the Halls DSP
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Old Olive, Ruby Red, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Summer Sun, Early Espresso
Accessories: Sponge, Xmas Rd stickles, Sizzix Top Note Die, dimensionals
