Sleigh Bells Ring

Join me for our new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties!  Our theme for this challenge is Sleigh Bells Ring" with SLEIGH being the operative word and don't forget, your creation must be Christmas themed and feature a cute, cute image.  

From this point forward, all our challenges will be just for fun and you get to display the Top 3 and Winner's badge!

This stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp and it's called Night Before Christmas.  The first card obviously was my first try and using this stamp set and all went well.  I thought it was missing some brightness/shine so I went on to make other cards using different colors of distress oxide inks and embossing powder.

Distress Inks: Card #1 - Prize Ribbon, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Festive Berries.  Card #2 - Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Pickled Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade.

Distress Inks: Card #3- Pickled Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Shaded Violet, Antique Linen.  Card #4 - Hickory Smoke, Prize Ribbon, Faded Jeans, Iced Spruce, Fossilized Amber

Now it's your turn to show us your Christmas project and make sure you check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration and remember - projects must be Christmassy and have to be Cute!
