Mixed Media Card Challenge #5 - Christmas

This is my second post for the day, please click HERE for my ATCAS #51 post.

Time flies so fast, we are already through with four challenges and now heading to another fun challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. You can also join in the fun!! Read about mixed media definition HERE and u will know what I am talking about.  So let's see what our challenge is and what I created...
Christmas with an optional element of Bells.... We have a wonderful sponsor STAMPlorations for this challenge and is generously offering the following -
Prizes:
1 winner - $15 gift certificate (randomly drawn from entries with optional element)
1 winner - choice of stamp set from select categories (randomly drawn from all entries)
I used the beautiful bells from STAMPlorations Holiday Sketches - Christmas Bells to create this card...

To make this card, I took a panel and die cut it with PPP stitched border die, then I scored it and swipes the ink pads to create a wood grain effect. On the card base I stenciled some embossing paste to create snow. I stamped fuzzy cut and colored the bells. Die cut some foliage and adhered it all on the card base. I am linking this to 613 Avenue Create #95 - Anything Goes!, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes! and Christmas Card Challenge #48 - Anything Goes!

There is a lot more incredible inspiration by a versatile and uber talented team :) Please head over to our challenge blog to check out the details of the challenge and some more inspiration.
