Christmas Bells!

Hi! I put this card together last night after stamping all the new Magnolia images that arrived in my Winter Club Pack. I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw Tilda holding the bell and the individual bell stamps. This sentiment works perfectly with this bell themed card. This gorgeous dp is from Daisy D's - I just love the simple design and soft muted colours of it. The mistletoe stamp used down the side of the card is from Sunshine Designs by The Stamp Barn. I used the scallop edge punch to give it a nice finished and used my tombow markers to add a small touch of colour. Stickles on the red berries makes it pop up with sparkle! The card ended up being one of the 'busiest' I've ever put together but I do feel it works well and that it's not too much - do you think? I usually make fairly simple layouts and designs as I don't like a lot of 'fuss' to my cards so this one is a little out of my norm. I was ready to finish the card after adhering the bells and the sentiment but the bottom left hand corner was feeling empty and that there was something missing. I punched out three branches from Martha Stewart's tree branch punch and added some stickles for a little sparkle. I think this was enough to fill in the space without overwhelming the rest of the card.
Thanks for popping over and taking a peek! I hope you all enjoy a fabulous weekend and get the chance to ink up and stamp!
