Time for the First Challenge of 2018 at the Jingle Belles!!!

Already I'm behind with the Jingle Belles Challenge, I thought I had really lost my mojo, I just couldn't get things together and I really want to make a card for  the challenge as it sounded so much fun!!! What did Santa bring you?  I must admit I had to buy my own crafty Santa  gifts although someone put some crafty things in my stocking. I used a new die from this year and (hanging head in shame) a Stampin'up set I just had to have last year and it's never been used with the exception of the bow on another project.  So here is my Santa gifts to myself.

Blue stardream cardstock is the back-drop for those super cute drop ornaments which I purchased this year, I framed them in a white stardream oval frame which I elevated with a fun foam oval.

Here is a close up of the greenery and bow that is from a thinlets set I bought last year and only the bow has seen the die cutting machine. 

Finished the inside of the card with a simple sentiment. 

I am entering this in 
Jingle Belles ~~ what did Santa bring you?

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week.
