Red, White, Sparkle, Bells

Oh boy did I have fun making this card!  Down to the wire again for Lil' Inker Monthly Meetup & since Anything Goes I combined it with Merry Monday, Red & White. The Lil' Inker Cover Up Die was part of the prize package I won from PaperCrafts late last year.  You can't really tell what it looks like, so decided it was time to find out.  Isn't it great?!  
I again reached for my Glitter Dust & then attached it to my favorite red textured cardstock (which is now almost gone, unfortunately) using Perfect Paper Adhesive.  For embellishment I used ribbon, a snowflake button, 2 red jingle bells & tiny pearls with sequins.  And yes, I am making mostly flat Christmas cards this year.  It's a good thing I allowed myself 10% that aren't--LOL!  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday as Glitter Dust is one of my favorite products (& so are pearls!)  I used big scraps so will add this to The Playground.  Still catching up on my blog reading & have to work the next couple days, but I'll see you soon.
