Wintergreen Jingle

I have really enjoyed the sketch challenges the last couple of weeks! Todays sketch is AWESOME!LOL! It did take me a few to find an image to work with! I bought the jingle sentiment on my last trip to Michaels and I completely forgot I had the bell image until I went digging today!LOL! Come on ladies I know you all have them to! You know the big box with all the $1 stamps you've bought b/c they are only $1 and so cute and you'll sure you will find a way to use them!LOL! I think the bell was from last year but Im not sure.
I colored the bells with my primsacolor pencils. I think Im going to add somewhere on here all images colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol unless noted otherwise!LOL! I use them everyday! I actually have very few bold image stamps! I used my 1 1/4 " and 1 3/8" circle punches for my main image. I applied silver stickles to accent parts of the bell and diamond stickles for the bow. My sentiment is stamped in always artichoke. I had to put the sentiment over more than I wanted to to cover up a boo-boo!LOL! SHHH!! Dont tell! The photo corner was made with artichoke and I used silver eyelets and silver cord to tie it closed. All dp is Wintergreen dp. My cs is certainly celery, always artichoke, soft sky and PTI white. The soft sky looks darker in the pic for some reason.
While making my card this morning I ran out of mono! I went in a panic looking for some glue and pulled out this UHU glue stick I bought like a year ago. I love the stuff! OMG!! I cant believe Ive never used it before. Let me tell you it sure holds!LOL! Hope you have a great day!
