Seasonal Bells

suo163It’s the first SUO Challenge of December and our theme this time is Holiday Elegance.  I have to tell you…I actually made several different cards for this and then decided to use this one (don’t worry, I’ll share the others).

This was a card that we did at one of my Holiday Card Classes and I have to say it was probably my favorite one of that class.  I just LOVE how the music paper works with it!
