DRU - Merry Christmas ...

Hello Friends and thanks for stopping by!
It's my turn once again to share an inspirational creation over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog using dies & etc. from the Dies R Us Store.  I've recently received some of the fabulous new Christmas dies available so that's the direction I took for today's card.

The items from the Dies R Us Store are:

The background panel was done on white cardstock and sponged using Memento 'Bamboo Leaves' green ink over this beautiful Memory Box Christmas stencil.
The bells were actually cut 3 times.  Once in white so I could color the ribbons/holly with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, 2nd time with blue shiny paper for the bells and the 3rd time with silver shiny paper for the inlays on the bells.  SO MANY things you could do with this die!!
