Cupcake Challenge 227

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 227 we have a theme of "with bells on" and we would like to see bells of some sort on your card/project. This week we are sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop and they are giving us a £10 gift voucher as a prize.

For my card today, I thought I'd make an early Christmas card and I used stamps from WMS Seasonal Remedies set. I stamped the image with memento rich cocoa ink and I distressed it with antique linen and vintage photo ink then I gave the same distress treatment to my background card and I repeatedly stamped my main image over again with antique linen to make my background.

I finished off with the usual stitching, some ribbon and a bell. This was very quick and easy to make but I really love the finished look, it also doesn't have a lot of layers either so hopefully it won't cost too much to post!!!

Card/Paper: Ivory and red card
Stamps: WMS - Seasonal Remedies
Colouring: Distress inks - antique linen and vintage photo. Memento - rich cocoa
Embellishments: Ribbon, bell
Tools: Sewing machine
