~* Jingle Bells (Jingle Belles Challenge #5 - Amy's Lovely Sketch) *~



Hi Everyone!

It's been a busy, crazy week for me...but I wanted to play along with the gals at jingle belles :). This week, the fabby Amy Tsuruta made a sketch for Challenge #5. It's a super cute sketch :).

I made a pretty simple card. I used the Making Memories Noel paper collection that I picked up last weekend. Love the vintagey papers. I cut out one of the phrases, Jingle Bells (Isn't it fitting, hee hee), from one of the DPs, distressed the edges with my fingernail and ink. I added some pretty poinsettias I picked up locally and also distressed the edges of the background DP with ink.

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
Steph :)
