Christmas Bells

Another christmas card created:

This card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 202
Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge - #4
CHNC - Christmas Red and Green must be seen
CHNC - Anything Christmas

The sketch that I have followed is this one:

I have used three papers from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft and some green cardstock for matting.  The green trees and green diagonal stripe papers I die-cut with a Spellbinders square die.  The image has been die-cut using a Spellbinders Oval scallop die.  The ribbon is from a christmas themed pack of ribbons by American Crafts.  The tree is an embellishment I've had for some time in a container.  I added some red pearls to the tree as baubles. 

The image that I have used for this card comes from Priscilla Sparks.  It is the image supplied to Lady Anne for her Progressive Christmas Challenge #4.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the image that I wanted to use with this sketch, so for this challenge I'm really organised!  The copic colours I have used for colouring are R29, R02, G17 and G14.


  1. Such a pretty card, love how you have coloured the image. It is good to have you in our Christmas Progressive Challenge. I hope we see you again soon.

  15. Hey Suze!

    Boy talk about being on the ball getting your LAPCC card in. I wish I could be that fast but it needs to go in line behind every other card I need to get done before it. Love that bold polka dot paper and the tree embellie looks great too!
