I can hear the bells

One challenge I've given myself this summer is to not ALWAYS make cutesy cards.  There are still a few that sneak through, because I like them so much, but I want to stretch myself.  Luckily, Fantabulous Cricut had a bells challenge this week, and I only have two cartridges that have bells, and neither one is cutesy!

I decided to go with this bell from Stretch Your Imagination.  It would have been really easy to just use the main cut, but I was thinking about trying new things so I decided to go with the shadow and outline features. I really like how that worked.  I used some old leftover paper from a black and white pack I got years ago to do my wedding scrapbook as well as one of the borders.  Then I added a little blue bling at the top and decided that it was done.  I had originally stamped a tag from the same paper line to put up in that left corner, but it just wasn't working for me.  I realized that I have really no wedding sentiments, so I guess that means I'll have to buy a few more sets of stamps.  Oh, darn.
