Running round in circles

When I saw that the challenge over at Crafty Hazel Nut was 'Going round in circles' I thought, "Great. A chance to use the lovely Marianne die that arrived in the post this week". So I cut it out in red card using my faithful cuttlebug, and than started searching for an image to put on it. I was struggling a bit as it is quite small, but eventually I found these bells on an ancient sheet of traditional decoupage. I used three layers to give them some dimension, and added them to the circle die cut.

I tried it on several different colours and settled for some yellow Graphicus paper I had in my stash. For the main card I printed out a sheet of red from the Artylicious Season's Greetings CD, and cut a square to cover the front of a blank 15cm square card. It was a bit plain so I added some swirls, also new Marianne dies, and made another circle to carry the text using various nestability dies and an Art Journal stamp.

I am entering this card in Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge 15 - Going round in circles.
