Joyful Season

Bah! Humbug!     Challenge 21...Sleigh Bells Ringing...
Jingle Belles     JB22-We Three Kings-use at least 3 pieces of pattern paper
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge     Use Some Ribbon

It's been awhile since I made a card that was for more than 1 or 2 challenges, but today this one fits 4.
These are my 3 favorite Christmas Challenges and since my Mom has been at the nursing home I've been hit and miss at some things. Hours in the day seem to slip through my fingers, oops, still whining from yesterday. 
Moving on. 
I started with the sketch, then I found these cute jingle bell brads in my stash, Yay, I think I've got 4 pieces of pattern paper on here, and I hope Hazel will let me squeak by with these little gold bows. Maybe some points for tying such tiny cord into bows by hand? ;-)

Supplies: 5 1/2" Square card, Papers: SU-Always Artichoke, The Paper Studio-Greetings of the Season Paper Pack, Stamps: SU-Seasons of Joy, Ink: Brilliance-Galaxy Gold, VersaMark, Ranger Embossing Powder-Evergreen, Sharpie Paint Pen-gold, Spare Parts-jingle bell brads, SU-1" and 1 1/4" circle punches, Crafts Etc-gold cord 2 ply., ScorTape.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

My dad was in a nursing home, so I understand a bit of what you're going through. Lovely to see you joining in again with my challenge and the bows are certainly good for it - how did you tie such neat little bows? Hope to see you again when time permits - next week is a random prize week. x
