It's a NEW Year and a New Challenge at the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge!!!

 It's a good start to a New Year when all the "NEW" challenges begin, the prompt for this challenge is to use something Old and something New on your project. First there is a NEW header on the Jingle Belles Blog it's awesome.  Now I have lots of unused things, quite a few Christmas items so it's not hard for me to use something "new" but the middle of DecemberI ordered a couple of new dies and they finally arrive on Thursday January 7 so I just had to get them in the big shot, so here is my card.

It's a very large three die bauble so decided to just spotlight one on a slimline card,  The back ground is a slimline diagonal die but I decided to emboss it,  once I figured out the recipe, The last big shot I bought came with long base platform but regular plates, not sure if that was supposed to be as I didn't question when I brought it home (was not a fan of the store I bought it at, not very good customer service) I still had to turn it around and emboss the other end. So that was my second "new" item. Thinking of you I cut three times and glued them together to give some elevation, this is an older item. Most of the cardstock I used was from back in the day you could get Michaels cardstock packages for $4 or less. I also brought out my Dylusions sprays which are many years old, it was one day when I had a 50% off coupon and decided sprays "in" and then I I just tucked them away as I didn't seem to have control to use them.  Very happy with the outcome. The bow is from a retired SU set. 

Well didn't manage to get a good picture  but it shows how the bauble goes together. 

Finished the inside with a stamp I got as a prize from the Jingle Belles, not sure why I have never played with the set before they even came with dies.  The sentiment was also a prize from the Jingle Belles and my fav. horizontal sentiment.

I will be entering this in:

Thanks for spending some time here today and happy crafting.

Very pretty! Nice job with the sprays - I usually spatter mine more than actually try to spray them. Great use of purple, too! (My Big Shot also came with the long platform and regular plates - right out of the sealed box.)
Thanks for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge!
