Jingle Bells Rock! FMS210







I love the color red and I love jingle bells! Yes I was that kid in grade school that always wanted the bells when the music teacher passed out the instruments!  So in my world red glittery jingle bells add a merry touch to any Christmas card! 

Someone else I know was looking rather merry herself in red this week on her trip to the apple orchard.








Cindy Lovell's cute sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches packs a triple punch!   I used Holly Jolly greetings for the sentiment and background stars and red glitter paper for the jingle bell diecuts.

Did you use a die for the bells? How did you make them. They are adorable.

I love, love, love this card! Firstly, I love the way you used the sketch - having the jingle bells overlapping and wonky (not all lined up like in the sketch) is perfect! I love the little sprinkling of dots & stars around the bells! And I love how the stripes in the background really set it all off. Awesome card!

Of course the little Emma is a doll! Hugs.

Love the card. I have a bell that fell off my sweater in a cubby in my car. When I turn it rolls and makes a bell noise - I LOVE it. :-)

Such a gorgeous holiday card, with just the right touch of bling on those jingle bells! All those extra little touches (the silver star spray, silver bows and striped DP behind) are fabulous!

This just might be the best card you've ever designed (in my humble opinion). It's absolutely an eye-catching, strikingly beautiful Christmas card. I love the sparkling bells, the DSP and all the fabulous details. Love, love, LOVE.
