jingle bells

well my first xmas card this month ~used the fab sketch by kristin over on JUST CHRISTMAS AND BIRTHDAY CARDS ~really out of my comfort zone with this sketch (does it show??) anyway added musical notes (not stars) as thought it went better with the theme of my card ~really not so sure they look right!!
any way used hand made gold and glittered papers, dovecraft xmas stamps, nestabilities pinking circles, quickutz musical notes , ribbons from my stash and finished with a little glitter.
look forward to showing my first guest DT xmas card on monday, little better for my style i think!! remember to check out the new challenge on monday ...byeeeeeeee
