More Christmas bells

This is my second card for my CHNC challenge 88: Christmas bells.

This time I used a piece of Anna Griffin paper that really needs little added to it or it would take away from the design, so I cut out the bells and holly from an identical paper and decoupaged just one more layer. I added a couple of sticky glittery ribbons on the side and a Craftwork cards sentiment and then glittered the holly berries with stickles.

When I did this post last night I was too impatient to let the stickles dry, so here is another photo taken this morning now that the glitter is dry:
