Vintage Jingle Bells

Hey friends!  It's Monday again, and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  I'm not feeling very well, so this is going to be short and sweet.

I have what seems to be a mountain of Christmas supplies, particularly ephemera, that I'm challenging myself to use this year instead of purchasing new.  It's been fun digging through the years of collected embellishments and papers, so that's what I did here.  Love the 25 ephemera, so used that as one of my circles, and stamped the jingle bells and sentiment from Bright Spirits on the larger circle.

Added some embellishments, including my new favorite of embossing a wood veneer snowflake with frantage embossing powder for a super fun snowy effect.  Each layer is inked with antique linen distress ink and matted with black.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a fantastic start to your week.

Always love the little jingle bells! I just used some this morning for my mojo card for next week (gotta think ahead with traveling out of state for T-giving). Hope you feel better soon and will be able to celebrate this special week of Thanksgiving in tip top shape!
