Holiday Inspiration Group - 12 Days of Christmas - DAY 10



Welcome to Day 10 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". 

This card was made 24 times as part of my Church Christmas Card project. I used a Printworks Sentiment, and a Stamplorations bell. I love that they both have a sketchy feel and to continue that, I doodled the frame around the edges. This provides a bit of definition without another layer of cardstock, and it's easy to do - no precision required!

I coloured the ribbons in the colours of the Salvation Army (my church) flag - yellow for fire, red for blood and blue for holiness. I added a layer of sparkle to the bells with a Silver Wink of Stella pen.

Here is a list of all the crafty ladies participating in this event. Be sure to visit all the blogs each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas.

Your hand drawn frame is an excellent finishing touch to your card. The bells and bow look great - the wintery colors are perfect.
