Merry Monday #290 - Add Christmas Bells

Happy Monday friends and welcome to another Merry Monday Challenge.  I am the hostess this week and I would like to see bells on your Christmas card.
I love the swag in the inspiration photo so I tried to mimick it with my card.  I used  the retired SU Bells & Boughs set and stamped the larger image with the poinsettias at the top of my white panel and colored it with Promarkers.  I sponged some green ink around the open areas to fill in.  I embossed the lower part of the white panel with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Brick Wall EF.  I stamped the bells image and colored it with Promarkers, but I also stamped just the bells on gold paper and fussy cut them, and then mounted this image with foam tape.  This was mounted on a SU Wild Wasabi panel cut with a scallop die from MFT Blueprints 27 set.  As a final touch I added the die cut sentiment using a Lil' Inker Designs die.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Merry Monday and play along with this fun challenge.  Can't wait to see your cards in our gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
