Celebrate The Occasion Christmas No Red Challenge


Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Celebrate The Occasion! This time the challenge is to create a Christmas project but you CAN'T use RED. Right now CTO is holding a Design Team Call. If you are interested, please head over there and check out how you can apply.
I made this fun "jingling" card. I cut the stocking from Jolly holidays at 4 inches. I inked around the edges and mounted it on pop dots. I tied a ribbon to the card and added some twine to the top. I strung on a bell before I glued it down and added a bow out of the white ribbon and also the twine. This card is so much fun because it "jingles" when you touch it. To finish I stamped the sentiment 3 times which comes from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun stamp set. I just love the cute sparkles on this sentiment!
I hope you all will play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the fabulous DT has made. Have a GREAT DAY!
I am going to enter this into Simply Crafts Challenge- Use a stocking cut from Jolly Holiday

I like the 'no red' idea. For me, all my xmas cards had red in them this year, going to have to try something different next year.
Great job. --C
