Penny's challenge 304: Christmas

This is my design card for Penny's challenge 304: Christmas - please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I used Lacy Sunshine Rory's silver bells, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pens and used a quickie glue pen and Art Institute white glitter to add sparkle to the hat. This was mounted on to an offcut piece of red holographic card with stars. Washi tape and other bits and pieces from stash. Background and offcut piece with snowflakes from The colours of Christmas vintage design pad from The Works.
