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
