Jingle All The Way

Well the JustRite Inspiration challenge #33 has really got me going. I decided to make a few more holiday wall hangings using the sketch and this is the next one I came up with.
I used JustRite's A Merry Little Christmas Set for this wall hanging. The DP is some I bought at the end of the season last year and I no longer have the info on who it's from (I wish I did since I'd buy more).
I had some metallic paper that has been sitting in my stash for over a year, but the ribbon and bells are new from Michael's.
Sewing is not one of my fortes but it had to be done for this hanger since my original idea of threading the ribbon through the bells wouldn't work. So out came my dusty sewing box and needle and fibers attached the bells. After attaching them to the left side I thought can it have too many jingle bells???? No so I used them for my embellishment on the left side.
My medallions down the center were a hoot to do. The red metallic paper that I stamped and embossed the snowflakes on was a sheet 8" by 5.5" and these two circles are all that was left after hours of trying to emboss these images. Shiney paper is slippery. The center jingle bell was a lot easier to do, I first inked up the jingle bells and then added the border and inked that up separately. I colored it up with Copics and Jelly Roll pens. I added some glaze and stickles to the bow. I used plain circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities to cut the images and mats out . A little bit of Score Tape and I was all done.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping done.

Fun little door hanging. Very festive. Nice way to use up stuff stashed away and almost forgotten?
Good job!
