Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge...JUGS10 40

*****If you are looking for my March of the Snowman Blog Hop creations PLEASE click HERE :)***** Thank You!!!

Hello Everyone! Thanks so much to all who played along last week with the Just Us Girls Holiday Gift Packaging Template challenge! This week, it is Pam's turn to be the Hostess with the Mostest!

Here is Pam's AWESOME sketch:I hope you can join along in the fun this week :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls blogs to see how they created their project! Thanks for looking! We look forward to seeing what you can do with Pam's sketch!

I flipped the Pam's sketch 90 degrees to create my Jingle Bells card.


For color inspiration, I used the lovely colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #71, CTD71. I chose to showcase the "Jingle Bells" sheet music & add splashes of color with my stamping & embellishing.



Using a super-duper sharp sissors, I cut out the stamped Christmas tree image & layered in on top of the Cuttlebug snowflake embossed PTI Kraft cs. First I gave the snowflake embellishments a lil' vintagey look by smudging on a lil' bit of the Ranger Tea Dye ink then I placed a Making Memories crystal brad in the center! A Jingle Bells card wouldn't be complete without Jingle Bells! :) I strung a few jingle bells together with a piece of SU silver cord & attached it to my red bow & fastened a pink button in the center. They REALLY do Jingle!!!!

Ingredients Used: Stamps: SU Perfect Presentation, Paper: Bazzill Pomegrantate, SU Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Kraft, Very Vanilla, PTI Kraft Ink: SU Old Olive Sprinkles: Cuttlebug snowflake EF, American Crafts ribbon, button & jingle bells from stash, Making Memories crystal brads, Martha Stewart snowflake punches x3, EK Success border punch
