Jingle Bells !

This card is for 3 challenges, Truly Scrumptious who provided a wonderful sketch and also a recipe of 3 flowers, 3 brads and 3 gems; Winter Wonderland which is Jingle Bells and My Time to Craft, So Many Scallops. The main image is a Serendipity stamp that I've shaded with Pro Markers and sponged Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Inks around the edge. The small circle has been stamped with a Papermania Duo stamp then cut out using a circle Nestability and mounted onto a Scalloped Nestability. I also sponged some ink over the text. The flowers are a Quickutz die and I've cut them out of Basic Grey paper and added gems to the centre. All of the papers are Basic Grey, I do love how they all blend together. Then last but not least I've added 3 brads.

It's rained really hard here today and has also been quite cold. I'm keeping everything crossed that it will stay dry at least, for the week end. We're both really ready for a break, I just wish it was longer than the 4 days, but then again I shall be itching to get back to my craft room !
Thanks for looking.
