Jingle Bells

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

I decided to use Sketch #210

And here is my take:

Jingle Bells | by karen @ carefree creations

It’s funny…every week I thought about how to use the colors or sketch as a holiday card (because I knew these challenges were coming). Of course, now when I need them, I don’t remember. Thankfully, I was able to come up with quite a few ideas. This sketch is so versatile. I thought these jingle bell dies worked perfectly.

The bells are cut from shiny silver paper and then backed with dark grey (so the bell openings don’t show the background). I chose colors that I thought would work well with silver.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
