CAS(E) this Sketch! - Challenge #1

I sat and thought about the first CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge all week before deciding what I wanted to produce.  For those who don't know, CAS(E) this Sketch! is a new blog that started two weeks ago, with a very talented line-up of ladies set to challenge us with wonderful CAS sketches.  

Definition of CAS and CASE

The acronym CAS stands for Clean and Simple.

1. Usually only one layer but can include a simple layer or two.

2. A lot of open space sometimes called "white space" can include color, texture or pattern.

3. Usually no embellishments but can include something minimal.

4. Minimal color palette.

5. Quick and easy to create.

The acronym CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.

Their first challenge is this wonderful sketch:
I wanted to produce another Christmas card, and so I got out my "My Creative Time - Warm Holiday Fun Stamp Set" to cut out the delightful little bells with the die.  I thread my five silver bells onto some silver DMC metallic thread and matted them on a simple strip of dark green cardstock.  This was then adhered to my basic white card, and the sentiment "Silver Bells" from the same stamp set was added.  Voila!
Hope you like it!

WHOOPS!  I forgot the most important part of my creation!  In my rush to get it blogged before the deadline (ok, and before I went to the gym!), I forgot to add my stickles sparkle to one of my bells...  here is the updated photo!
