Jingle Belles - Festive Foliage

We're celebrating the holly and the ivy - festive foliage of the holidays with the Jingle Belles this time.  I used this string of bells die to decorate with some holiday foliage which was also die cut.  The background panel is embossed with tons of poinsettias.  

I also used a piece of vintage ribbon with more poinsettias.  The white is a lot white IRL.  The bells were cut from silver metallic paper.  

Since we're having a snow day tomorrow with a March blizzard forecasted for our area I am going to try to get another card done for this challenge.  Stella is the name of the storm.  They're using all kinds of adjectives for this one - historic being one of them.  And I hope that it doesn't turn out to be as historic as the last storm that began with an "S" - Sandy.  We are in the 18-24" path.  Thank goodness for snowblowers.  

We have a pool going with our Table 7 crew as to the final accumulation total using our house (the furthest north) as the measuring point.  Might as well make it interesting, although I think that all our guesses will be less than what we actually get according to all the weather service hype.

  1. see, i keep on telling everyone it was a MISTAKE to start naming these storms... it just encourages them to be "memorable"!!!!!! :0

    on the other hand, this gorgeous card is EXACTLY the right kind over memorable... also gorgeous, creative and cool! and an excellent reminder that i'm a fool to forget about e'f/s for months at a time bc they add so much interest & texture to cards!!! love this! keep safe & warm! xoxoxolauren

  2. What a lovely card Lorraine! I just love the string of bells die you used!
