A Banner Holiday with Jingle Belles

Yeahhh, I finally found some time to play with the current Jingle Belles challenge! I'm still riding on the high of the NY Giants Super Bowl win(I'm a lifelong fan of the G-Men!) and so I thought I'd better take advantage of this energy while I had it :0)

For this new year of challenges the ladies of JB, Lauren and Stef, made some challenges to the blog. One of these changes included a new banner with new graphics and colors. This is where this weeks challenge comes from---we are to use the new banner as inspiration for our project!

I love the bells going across the banner and the red that is used for the name and accenting on the bells, so I went with that for my inspiration. My favorite Christmas song is "Silver Bells" so I went with silver shimmer paper for my bells and red glimmer paper was used in the background as an accent. The bells were cut using my Cricut and the Joys of the Season cartridge.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: sentiment from Jolliest Time of Year
Paper: Soft Sky, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Red Glimmer Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, S.E.I. WinterSong/Flurry Kisses paper
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Cricut, Joys of the Season cartridge, Silver Elastic Cord, dimensionals
