Holiday Wishes for Jingle Belles & Tis' the Season

On the way to the Farmer's Market yesterday, Hubby spied a  yard sale and suggested we stop. I wasn't really in the mood, but I'm so glad we stopped. I found a number of fun items including old music books, a Saturday Evening post Christmas book full of stories and artwork and these fabulous Christmas playing cards! There are two different prints in the set and they came in a beautiful tin that will be perfect packaging for a set of gift tags. I couldn't wait to get home and try to turn one of the playing cards into a card!
 Tis' the Season and Jingle Belles have a cross over challenge going on - you need to use the sketch (below) and use some bling. This is what I came up with...

Another shot with the envelope I made to match.

You will notice that I rotated the sketch.

Here is the inside:

Thought I would share evidence that the mojo seems to be back if not on it's way. A creative mess is usually a good sign, lol!

Thanks for your visit!

Here is what I used:
papers: MME All is Bright
ink: ruby and juniper from CTMH
most of the rest of what I used is pictured here
recycled playing cards
