Jingle Your Own Bells

I've done the Catch The Bug's 12 Days of Christmas out of order a little, but I'm almost finished with all 12 days! Yay! One more to go, after this one!

For Day 12, we were asked to make a project inspired by a Christmas song. Here is my day 12 project for the 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug. I chose the Christmas song, "Jingle Bell Rock" and used the non-traditional color combo of black, white and red.

I'm using sketch #144 at Inspirational Card Sketches for my card layout. I went with these fun musical papers and the Stella Stockings image from Bugaboo Stamps. I colored her with Promarkers and added texture and shine to the fur on her dress and hat, with white Perfect Pearls. The gorgeous red ribbon with gold metallic thread is from my stash. The sentiment says "Jingle Your Own Bells" and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. The sentiment and image are attached with foam mounting tape for extra dimension. I used a pretty, lacy silver doily on the card, as well. The doily is adorned with these cute gold jingle bells, attached with red and white baker's twine.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
