Christmas Card Challenge week #16

The challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenge is a shape card.

I am super busy this week getting ready for the Madison Mingle. I am taking lots of stuff for the sale and  I had to get my box of 50 card kits ready to go. But I really want to keep up with make my  Christmas cards. Here is the one for Challenge Week #16
I used one of my bell shape bases that I have in my store. That wonderful snowflake I won from Holly at Hogwild About Stamping. I would love to learn how to make them. She gave it to me a year ago and I just couldn't use it but this paper had snowflakes and I just thought it would look great. The "Joy" is a die cut stamp set. I cut it and stamped it with silver ink. The bells I cut from silver paper. I also added a grommet and cord to the top so it could be hung. It is prettier in real life. The tinsel really sparkles.

I am just about done with my Merry Monday card and I will post that tomorrow.
Off to do a lot of packing.

Have a wonderful day.
Thanks for stopping,
