Christmas Bells

 I love this card, the bold bright colors really speak to me.  The musical score is a favorite set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, School Papers, the holly with bells is a free image from Dezinaworlds freebie site Olde Curiosity Shoppe.  The beautiful green envelope I picked up at Dollar Treasure and I added  one of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff SVG Envelope & Liners in a contrasting white.  I just love the elegant touch they add to all my cards.  I embossed some snowflakes on white card stock, I cut the holly and bells by hand, used a little Tim Holtz distressing to the edges of the green card stock and voila.  I picked up the ribbon on clearance at Pizzazz Aplenty.  I am joining the link party at  Make it Monday challenges.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  14. Beautiful card with matching envelope. I so like it when a crafter takes the time to decorate an envelope and include an insert.
    Great use of June's image.
