Uniko: Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop

Hello Friends, I'm back again and this time it's for the 
Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop

Here's my cards using sets from the latest release and this first 
one is definitely not your traditional colours but I just can't resist
a rainbow now and again. I've also used Balloon Bash to decorate
my bells using versamark ink and clear embossing powder. The other 
'shiny' details are created with a versamark pen and the clear EP.
To finish a hand-drawn string using a Signo silver gel pen.

I'd like to enter this one over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday challenge
where this week it's Anything Goes!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This one uses distress inks to create a snowy sky but using silver embossed
bells instead of the traditional snowflakes! I couldn't stop humming the 
'Silver Bells' tune which gave me the idea. 

I'd like to enter this one over at Merry Monday where they are looking for
blue and white Christmas cards with texture this week! I'm hoping the 
raised silver embossing will count as texture! 

Ok it's time to hop and don't forget to leave a comment at 
each of the Design Team blogs below in order to be eligible 
for a prize. You'll find all the details you need over at the main
Uniko blog HERE (also the first stop on the hop!)
