CCAYR mid-month post

This is one of my cards that has been posted today here for the mid-month inspiration for the Christmas cards all year round August challenge: fussy and fancy. If you haven't yet had a chance to join in, please click on the link and do so. And please have a look at the wonderful inspiration given by the crafting of the rest of the team.

I used a card blank with a ready cut fancy edge which I brushed with bundled sage distress ink, linking the inside of the card with coordinating paper. All papers are from a Hunkydory kit. Gems are from Hobbycraft and Poundland. The centre piece background with the bell is very glittered, which, unfortunately, doesn't show up too well here.

This is also for:
