Jingle Belles - Fa-La-La-La-La

This challenge was to make a card that was influenced by Christmas music (did the title give it away?).  And the card that I made has two possible inspirations......

Too easy?  Give up?  

Jingle Bells or Silver Bells - it fits both since I didn't have any traditional bells and had to use those jingle bell die cuts.  

The card base is Brushed Silver and the white panel is embossed with a music folder.  I raided my ribbon scrap bag for some of the ribbons and found the braided one in my stash of not yet used stuff. I originally had silver cord in mind to use for hanging the bells but it was elastic cord and a little too unwieldy for trying to glue in straight lines so I opted for some strips of silver textured scrapbook paper - sliced thin but not as thin as salami.  The music paper is from a paper pack I was gifted for Christmas (thank you again L) and the greenery were die cuts.  I originally thought I was going to add a red bow, but then decided on the silver ribbon to match the strips I had added to that wide ribbon under the circle. Much better choice I think.

Hmmm, now I have to give some thought about what I can do for the next week.

Take a look over here at the Jingle Belles blog to see what other lovely creations have been posted.
