Ding Dong

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week our theme is 'Ding Dong Merrily on High', so just add a bell somewhere.  I have used the remaining papers that I made following Jennifer McGuire's fabulous technique from Online Card Classes - this is the last one I promise, well at least for a little while!

I have kept with quite a simple design, the embossed background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder, the bells are mounted onto a circle that has been embossed with another Cuttlebug embossing folder and mounted on to a Spellbinders die cut circle.  The musical notes are a Nina Crafts stamp and the sentiment is a LOTV stamp, I used a Fiskars punch to create the border.
