Merry Monday 45 Golden Bells

Hello there,
well I managed to squeeze in the time for my second Merry Monday challenge. This week it was a sketch.
 I went a little vintage with this great sketch.
A close up to show you the embossing (gold and clear to get a reflecting shine effect - I hope - if not I like it regardless :) and shimmer on the background.
The inside - more golden bells.
So that's three cards for my 2013 Christmas stash. Yep that's right three. That's because I was top pick for last weeks Merry Monday  (delighted smile - has done my vanity no end of good!! ;) and if you drop past here on Tuesday you'll see what I came up with as guest designer for Merry Monday #46. Hope to see you then!
