Jingle Bells

Good Morning. We are half way though the week and I hope that you are all having a great one.
The weatherman is forecasting warmer weather for the rest of the week and I am looking forward to the holiday weekend that is coming up, can't wait!
 
Today is the start of a new challenge over at ABC Christmas and this week our theme is
J for Jingle Bells
 
How you choose to interpret this is up to you but do remember that it must be a Christmas project.

For my card, I have chosen to colour up this wonderful image from LOTV. I've even had another go at using some softer colours (gasp, I think that I might actually be starting to get the hang of it). Anyway, after colouring I dug through my paper stash and paired it up with some matching papers from MME. I've kept the layout simple so that I could embellish it with some over sized snowflake accents, these are actually Christmas ornaments that I picked up during the holiday season. I've added a little bow and some tiny bells to make this a card that rings with the sounds of the holiday season.
 
I hope that you are feeling a little bit inspired. Thanks for stopping by, now it is your turn to jingle.
