Rudolph's Got A Bright New Bell!

And just as I thought that I'd finished making Christmas cards for the time being (I aim to try and make some throughout 2010 as I did this year - and the result? Not stressed! Yeah!) I saw this cute felt tree decoration (or at least it was before I snipped the cord off) from Sainsbury's and it was half price too!

So, it stayed on my craft / dining table until I saw Rosie Dee's current challenge which is:

Rudolph's Got A Bright New Bell!

So how could I resist?! And this was one quick card to make too! Backing paper is a trimmed 6 x 6 sheet from A Wonderful Christmas Time pack from Papermania, edges inked with chestnut Whispers ink and a touch of green on the corners. Rudolph came with the bell attached and I've added the silver stars (the one on the antlers hides the string hole which looked a bit macabre!)

The ribbon is from my stash and I've tied a double legged bow for a bit of fancy.

And there you go! I bought another reindeer too, so I could possibly make another one the same!
