Jingle Belles Rock it with a Saturday Sketch........

Hello Jingle Belles Fans!!! finally I had time to join in with "tying one around the Christmas Tree" at the Jingle Belles, you get to use ribbon, lace, fibers, ricrac, or whatever trimmings you can think to attach to your card. Well I had dug into the ribbon jar and found a piece of red ribbon and that's as far as it went I didn't put it into the box of "stuff" for the lake, good job I had presence of mind to toss in some lace.


I had grand plans for crafting this weekend unfortunately I didn't plan as well as I thought. I took my big shot but only the magnetic base, embossing folder 3 of them, I couldn't emboss with the magnetic base. I brought no Christmas patterned paper pads, I must have 10 of them. What I did bring and gave some love to the music background I've had over 6 months and it's never seen ink, the other think ws the red doily bought at least 2 years ago after Christmas, the lace is sticky backed lace from Hero Arts and it reminded me of snowflakes.  I'm thinking there was no rhyme nor reason for my packing. Better luck next weekend. As soon as I saw the Saturday sketch I knew it was perfect for what I had planned for the challenge.


Close up of the image, it's called Candy Gram and features Amanda and Maxwell.


Finished the inside with a sentiment (remembered one good for me) and a piece of the music background

Sometimes it's fun to play with a limited selection of stash! You wouldn't know from this card, it looks great, the elements go together so well. I agree the lace looks like snowflakes, perfect for our challenge! Thanks for joining in with the 52CCT.
