25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 21 Jingle Bells

Hi Everyone!

How are you today? Well, I hope. All is great here. Just trying to get as much done before the kiddos all get out of school for Christmas break tomorrow. We are just having a nice quiet Christmas at home this year; and that is perfectly fine with me. Still, you know how it is...there's always a ton of stuff to do!

Anyhow, on to today's card. This card looked SO much different in my head! I don't know why it didn't translate the way I thought it would once I actually put it tougher. I considered not sharing it; but 25 cards is what I promised everyone; and I mean to deliver on my promise... gosh darn it!

I used "Bright Spirits" from Verve stamps for the image and sentiment. I stamped the jingle bells and the bird with ink before using a blender pen to color them in. I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the bells; but you can't see it in the picture. I also used Verve's Award Banner die create a sort of border around the image panel.

For better or worse, that is what I have for you today! Enjoy your day and I'll see you all again tomorrow!

Very pretty card! That happens to me a lot - where I have an idea in my head and can't make it look like that with actual paper! Very frustrating! I wish my kiddos got out of school tomorrow...we go through next Wednesday.

Great image and how you colored it. I think you share the cards that you make that don't appeal to you because sure enough they will appeal to someone else.
