Jingle Belles card 34


Hello ... 
Are you enjoying your Sunday? ... It's another lovely day here in the UK and I'm hoping that my hubby will be taking me out shortly for a coffee and a stroll around one of my favourite shops ... where I get my lovely rusted goodies from ... Mind you I bought another beauty yesterday at BHS ... I wouldn't have even noticed it if I hadn't had to use the Ladies room... They had a whole wall full of vintage inspired plaques ... how could I resist? The trip to the ladies cost me £8 ... I'll post it later on in the week ... I want to make a card with the same design first ... Then I promise you'll get to see it
For now I have my 34th card for the challenge at Jingle Belles ... who have linked up with Clean And Simple Stamping blog this week and have provided this sketch as our challenge 


So you get to link up to both blogs and there is a chance to win a super prize too! Even if you don't do the challenge hop over to both blogs and take a peek ... there is so much inspiration on offer 

On to my card ... I confess this sketch got me for a while ... I started a card last night but gave up .. the light was poor and my brain just wasn't working ... so I came back this morning and it all just fell into place ...


It just so happened that my long awaited Prima Printery collection paper pad arrived yesterday ... it's so gorgeous and I chose to use one the the papers from the pad rather than traditional Christmas paper ... all the stars are thick glittered stickers and of course I used my favourite CB folder (Swiss Dots) and a lovely stamp from WaltzingMouse


And I finally got the look I was going for ... no ribbons, no lace and no sewing ... can you believe it?

Have a wonderful Sunday and keep safe

Beautiful Christmas card, Ros! I love all the glittered stars and of course the embossing! Gorgeous look! Hope you had a lovely stroll and coffee!
Ideas are always in my head, Ros, that is why I don't get much sleep, can't shut them off! LOL! Have a great evening.

That's a good looking Christmas card! The blue stars make such fine embellies and superb contrast with the white and silver!

everything on this card is just gorgeous - from the fabulous glitter stars, to the wonderful stamped sentiment, to the pretty paper and finally, the pristine white embossed cardstock - it just goes together so well!

34 cards? It's embarassing but I have made zero christmas cards yet....
This Prima paper is gorgeous and I love all the glittered stars. The fact that you choose an embossed background is a subtle and very elegant detail. And you can never go wrong with WM stamps. Gorgeous Ross and I'm impressed that you play along every week. Woohoo!
