Silent Night....

Hey there!!  Happy Wednesday!  Have another Christmas card using non-traditional colors.   This card is for this week's ODBD Shining the Light challenge to have bells or baubles hanging from your card and the City Crafter's challenge to make pink the focus of a Christmas card.



For my card I used the ODBD Poinsettia background stamp and a sentiment from the ODBD Holly Tag set.   The papers are from the SU! paper pack called Beau Chateau.   The ink is SU! Pink Pirouette and Marina Mist.  I used some of that absolutely yummy May Arts crinkle ribbon for the bow.  It took me a while to figure out how I was going to attach the bells, but finally got it right this morning.  As I was finishing up the card it struck me as funny that I was putting bells on a card with a sentiment saying "Silent Night, Holy Night"!   I did some distressing (with ink and a distressing tool) to soften things up a bit.  The layout is from Deconstructed Sketch (DS28).

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! DP - Beau Chateau; Ink:  SU! Pink Pirouette & Marina Mist; Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink; Bells:  Joann's; Ribbon:  May Arts Pink crinkle ribbon; Twine:  The Twinery; Button:  PTI; Punch:  EKSuccess

Rosemary I love how you tied the jingle bells to your fabulous bow with enough extra twine so they could sway and ring. Beautiful....
