Bell Tree

PTI cardstock, stamps, & twine
Paper Studio card base
Hobby Lobby bells
Ribbon Boutique ribbon
Palette ink
Sizzix embossing folder

I promised I would make the card for my bell director's Christmas present, and I almost forgot (oops!) until now. We don't have a true bell tree at our church, so we have been making do with a laundry rack with a couple of bells hung on the opposite side for ballast. It takes a definite sense of humor to play a laundry tree!

This also works for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday- the pleated ribbon at the bottom made a nice base for the tree

Anyway, Connie's the best and she'll like the play on words here. I just hope that all of our signatures will fit on the inside right because the front is definitely bumpy.

I've never heard of a bell tree but this one is certainly adorable. Great card and a perfect take on the challenge.
