Bloggers Challenge - Merry Christmas!

Thanks so much for stopping by this past year - may your Christmas be filled with joy and the coming year be creative and prosperous!
This weeks Bloggers Challenge is all about Christmas - if you get a chance, be sure to click on the Bloggers Challenge Logo on my sidebar to see what the other members created today!

If you stopped by and read yesterday's post, I was working on a project for today - but unfortunately, it didn't go as planned, and I ran out of time - I'll be saving it for next years Christmas postings though, once it's finished.

So what's a stamper to do at this late moment, but get creative! I altered this card I previously by adding the ribbon image from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Build a Garland, then spritzed my card with Pearl Glimmer mist adding a nice shimmer to the finished card.

Don't forget Kitchen Sink Stamps - After Christmas Sale begins on 12/26! You'll save 20% off everything in the Kitchen Sink Stamps store when you use code LISA20KSS from December 26th - December 28th, midnight to midnight EST.

Other - Big Shot, CuttleBug Folder Snowflakes, Sponge Dauber, SAMJ, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain, Spellbinders Circle Die, Pearl Glimmer Mist, Dimensionals

To create the bells, I stamped them as follows on White card stock - Steps 1-2 Going Grey (stamping off first), Steps 4-5 Going Grey, then used the Out of the Box Technique to frame my focal image. To create the Ribbon, stamp as follows #4 Rich Razzleberry, #3 Rich Razzleberry stamp off, #2 Rich Razzleberry stamp off, #1 Rich Razzleberry stamp off twice.

Merry Christmas!
