December Daily Cover

I've decided to do my first ever December Daily this year. I've been gathering papers/paper packs, bits and pieces, and embellishments from all over. Things I've found on sale, or stuff even from my stash that will go nicely. I've also done my research on Pinterest (check out my Dec Daily board). ;) I could spend hours (and have!) on there!! So I've finally gotten my cover page done.
I'm sooooo pleased with how this turned out! This is my first year doing a DD, and I've combined 2 paper lines primarily - Simple Stories Handmade Holiday and Heidi Swapp Believe. I'll also be using some leftovers of stuff I have from Echo Park Tis the Season. (all available at www.acherryontop.com of course ;) I just love the deep, rich reds with the muted earthy greens, combined with the kraft and black/chalkboard. My favorite Christmas lines by far. For this cover, I've combined a little bit of this and that - papers from Heidi Swapp, with a Simple Stories Bingo card. Twine (Queen & Co.) from my stash that coordinates perfectly. DIY Thickers with bright red glitter, and some red rhinestone strips (from Hobby Lobby) on the edge of the thick satin red ribbon from my stash. A red bling star on the Bingo card completes the shiny red theme. And I added some Jingle bells from a bracelet that I just bought the other day that was too small for my wrist, so it became fodder for my scrapping needs! And it adds movement and whimsy. I just want to frame this and look at it forever...
