Christmas Bells

Here's some more sponging for

The challenge closes on the 24th so there's still time.


Our challenge this month is....


The bells were stamped on a snippet of Whisper White and heat embossed.

Then I sponged some ink over the embossing (emboss resist) and punched them out.

The edges of the punched holly leaves have been sponged and shaped 
and added to the tops of the bells.

I love this wire twine for shaped bows.  It ties beautifully and curls the way 
I want it too.

My mixed media are Stamping, Sponging, Heat Embossing, Punches and Dry Embossing

I hope you'll visit

This is such a pretty card Bonnie I love the embossed pine branches in the background and then the pretty bells and holly and love the nice strong blue in the background and for the sentiment too. I hope you have a lovely Christmas Bonnie and I am looking forward to seeing your wonderful cards throughout 2017. x

This EF looks gorgeous with the splendid blue bells. The holly was the perfect topper, and I must look for this silver wire. It certainly did shape into a lovely bow. A wonderful Christmas Eve share! TFS & Hugs. Merry Christmas too. I know Santa will be very generous to you, as you've been very good ALL year long! LOL

This card is so beautifully delicate. I love the space and an extra dimension in the background. Great card.
I am very sad that my card with Christmas wishes and New Year has not arrived you on time. Next year, I'll send you a card probably in mid-November. It may be a chance that you will get it for Christmas. Health, peace, love, happiness and a lot of great ideas, my friend, Bonnie
