This week's Merry Monday challenge No 63 is make a Christmas card to the sketch with jingle bells.
My card has the words jingle bells at the top on the pattern paper
 This is the card I made today.
I layered a piece of Allison Ellis paper onto green card and added purple star brads.  Stamped Penny Black "Christmas Wishes" onto white and layered on top of pp.  Stamped PSX stamp onto white card and coloured with distress and Kaszazz markers.  Wings coloured with gelly roll stardust markers.  Cut out with Stampin Up scallop circle punch and layered onto purple card cut out with Stampin Up large circle punch.
