Golden Bells

Good afternoon. 
On a Wednesday I'm usually too busy to get a post written up, unless it's a scheduled one, as it is my craft class but for one reason or another I've been at home in the craftroom!
Whilst checking through my blog feeds I saw that the latest challenge at Merry Monday is all about bells. That reminded me that I had a Christmas card that I didn't share at the time that would fit the bill perfectly. (Sorry Nich!) Rather appropriately is was one I sent to one of the craft class girls.

I've used this layout before on a couple of other cards, using the evergreen bough, sentiment and bell from the Christmas Bell Medley set by STAMPlorations. 
I stamped and masked the bells, then added the foliage in green. I added some white gel pen over the branches to add some dimension and drew in some strings with a black fine liner. 
I coloured the bells with Copics then using a Versamark pen I inked the band and embossed with gold EP. To finish I embossed the sentiment in gold to match.

I'm joining in over at -
