Merry Monday Bells

I was thrilled to win the "chalkboard" challenge at Merry Monday last week!  It means they've invited me to be the Guest Designer for the upcoming challenge "Make a Card with Bells on It".

 Here's my card:

I had run off a bunch of pieces using a friend's musical score embossing folder and had this narrow strip of it sitting in my UFO box.  The space at the bottom made me think of a new stamp I recently bought - I thought it would work well with the curviness of the embossing folder.  Here's the stamp:

I knew I couldn't fit in the whole stamp, and all I really wanted was the sentiment, so I used my Versamarker to ink up the part I wanted and then heat embossed it in gold. It just fit!!  

I die cut three bells out of dark gold glitter cs and strung them on gold cord, keeping the curviness idea going.  The bells and the whole panel are popped up with foam tape.

Thank you, Merry Monday, for the honour!
