Jingle Belles Card 31 ...

"Blue ... blue ... Christmas ......."

Hi there! 
... Just completed my card for week 31 at Jingle Belles where the lovely June Houck is Guesting this week
and she has chosen Blue Christmas ... (the main colour of your card is to be blue) ... and I defy anyone who is joining in this challenge not to be humming that wonderful Elvis song ... speaking of which ... you really need to see Lauren's take on this challenge ... that girl definitely has a mind of her own ...  and June and Steph have created wonderful cards (I'm so missing Love Links this week Steph) ... so even if you don't join in ... go take a look ... 
Anyway on to my card ... 


I missed the reindeer challenge so I wanted to use this little guy ... I picked up  a box of PaperMania Christmas chipboard pieces in Salford yesterday and I thought he was so cute with those little baubles on his antlers .... The background is from a Cuttlebug folder ... just added some glitter ... and the 'frame' is made using the scalloped die from PTI ...


 the snowflake is rescued from an old shop bought card and I just did something a little different with the pale blue ribbon ... I know a lady who loves blue ... but she has already bagged 2 of my Christmas cards ... wonder if she will change her mind again ... Stella?

Enjoy your day and keep safe 
Thank you for stopping by

Just read your comment about not wanting to part with the charms in the kit... I totally agree! That's why I don't usually get into my kits for at least a month... by then the new one is coming and I can start to "let go".
Hugs!

Your card made sigh and your story made me laugh my socks off.You clever girl :)
Yes This is to die for but we can solve the problem :). If you send this card to my DH :) I know I had a few others o my wishlist too :). Thinking of that robin card again; that card is my #1!!!

Forgive me for being off track again.
You use of that Cuttlebug embossing folder in a PTI frame is just brillaint. Fab use of that die (you use it so well; maybe that's a comfort for the price you paid .....!)

And that cutie with the baubles....
You always take me my breath away. This is anther stunner!
Have a lovely evening...XXXX
