papercutz #118 jingle all the way

happy friday! i hope you had a terrific thanksgiving.  this week over at papercutz our challenge is to use an image of jingle bells.
ive had this paper forever and am trying to use up all my old stuff, get it out of my cramped space so of course i can refill it ;)  be sure to check out the rest of the fab dts cards and projects for some great inspiration. 

                           for my card, i used my cricut and and joys of the seasons cartridge
i added some red pearls for berries on the holly leaves and tied some twine for a bow. wish i had some red rope cording to match the background paper. oh well, if i find a little piece before i send this off ill change it. i also used colorbox fluid chalk. the sentiment is from the paper pack ( daisyd's) and the base of my card is SU cherry cobbler.

i used thin pop dots under the bells for some dimension. 
thanks so much for stopping by and your comments are always much appreciated.
happy crafting :) xxxshelly

Beautiful, Shelly! Looks like you cut those jingle bells right out of that old fashioned paper. What a perfect match!
