Jingle Belles and CR84FN ...

Hi! 
Have you had a good weekend? It's bank holiday here and once again we have rain .. it's not warm either
But we Brits are used to that ... it gives us something to complain about Lol!
It was my brothers' birthday yesterday and we spent the day together ... with my hubby my SIL and my great niece Sophia ... who is living with her grandparents at the moment ...
She is such a joy ... and nothing is nicer than to hear her chuckles ... she had me playing peek a boo and chuckled so much I though she would choke ... I don't mind telling you that I needed a lie down afterwards  (not that I had one) ... but I am just not used to entertaining 2year olds anymore and keeping up with them!  


So once I had recovered ... I got the chance to make card number 22 for the Jingle Belles Rock challenge ... I really look forward to this challenge every week ... and this week the theme is "We Three Kings" ... to use three different papers on your card ... 
I somehow managed to combine this challenge with the one over at CR84FN ... I missed last weeks' ... and this week we have another beautiful colour palette courtesy of Martha Stewart 



I know these colours would not normally speak "Christmas" to me ... but it all started with a scrap I had of 3 negative snowflakes ... and I placed a piece of pale yellow paper (Websters Pages) behind and added blue rhinestones to the centres ...


I made some scalloped edging with my SB dies ... using snowflake paper from Papermania and added some matching trim which has sparkles in it ... 


... and used some MME glitter paper for the base ... this has kraft, blue and yellow in it ... so I think I covered all bases ...


... and added a little Jingle bell for good measure ...
So there we are ... what do you think? 

Have a great day whatever you have planned ... and keep safe 

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Beautiful cool and lovely card. Tough to think of snowflakes when we are going to hit our warmest day this spring. :) Lovely use of the colors and wonderful design. Glad you joined us at CR84FN!

I certainly didn't think Christmas when I saw that color palette ... but after seeing your gorgeous card, I'm a convert ... I particularly like the negative snowflake images ... and of course that sweet little jingle bell ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.

I love your snowflake card. I have so many rubberstamps, sizzix and quickutz dies of snowflakes and your card inspires we to get working on ideas on how to use them.

Blue is my favorite color for Christmas... and the kraft and yellow are amazing with it. That MME paper is gorgeous. This is all so pretty. Still haven't gotten mine done... maybe sometime tonight.

Beautiful card, Ros! Love that you used those colors for a beautiful Christmas card. Definitely know what you mean about two year olds. My granddaughter, Kate, will be three in August and has been a handful all her life! Colin, my grandson is 6 and has always been so easy for me to do things with even though he has more energy than I do. I am sure you will have wonderful memories of the day!

What do I think? I think this is stunning - elegant, classy, and beautiful. The colors and all the little touches (bling, bell, layers) make it wonderful!

For me the colours spoke of babies! But I think your Christmas card is just wonderful. the snowflakes are just fab - I like the way the pale yellow shows through the negative - just gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with CR84FN this week!
