A Whiff of Bells

I've resorted to blue again for today's card, but most of the cards this week will use totally different colours. This is a three challenge card and I'm entering it into:
Whiff of Joy - the incredible sketch layout
ABC Christmas - B is for Bells
Stamp Something - the colour combo of blue and white. I've taken a second photo when the sun was shining to show the shadows on the layers., but it didn't quite pick up all the stickles I added.
Items Used:
Brazill Basics card
Bearly Mine CD paper
Image WOJ Charlotte Riding Reindeer
Sentiment Docrafts Stamp
Border Inkadinkadoo Christmas Borders
Hobbycraft ribbon, punches
Stickles and Promarkers

Rightie ho - that is two Christmas cards in the box now. I'm feeling all ahead of myself.
I have some exciting news to share with you today. I will very shortly (this Friday) begin a DT slot with Frosted Designs. Their DT call really appealed to me because it mentioned making different things using different products and techniques each week. Well, anyone that knows me knows that I love to do new stuff whenever I can. We have some amazing challenges coming up in the next 3 months and I know one or two of them will take me out of my comfort zone - maybe not too far out of the comfort zone, but it won't a 45 min creation for me. I hope you'll pop back on Friday to see what I created for them, and I also hope that you'll get time to join in some of the challenges.
Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
