WMS Forum August Christmas Challenge - Are You Listening?

Well stampers, it's the 10th of the month - and that means that Lynn has posted the Christmas Card Theme for August in the Playroom of the Waltzingmouse Forum!!

And that theme is to be inspired by a favorite Christmas/holiday song!   Well -  I have SO many favorites - that I decided to go with a song that I had a stamp for!
The sentiment and snow flakes are from Compliments of the Season.  The window frame is from Twas the Night Before Christmas.  The bells and ferns are Martha Stewart punches.  I thought this felt alpine ribbon from SU (that I've had for ages and am finally using!) looked like the leather strapping they use for bells on horses!

Have you been making your Christmas cards ahead of time??!!  Come join us in the WMS forum!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - sentiment and snow flakes from Compliments of the Season, window frame from Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Paper:  Simply Chartreuse, Vintage Cream - PTI,  Gold - unknown
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen.
Accessories:  Bell punch and fern punch - Martha Stewart, ribbon originals Alpine - SU, rhinestones - Michaels, ScorTape.

You totally ROCKED this Christmas Card Challenge. I just adore those sleigh bells and how the sprigs of evergreen peek out from each. So very clever!! Thanks for playing along...I can always count on you. That means so much to me.
