Scribbles Designs ` Guest DT card for Christmas Carol Celebration Dec. 1-5

This uses the lovely image The Tolling of the Bells, available here.

The Scribbles Design team is holding a special 5 day challenge.  Note the specifics:
Christmas is on its way and this time of year, everywhere you go or every radio you turn on, you can hear the dulcet tones of beautiful Christmas carols emanating from the speakers around you. As such, this year we want to celebrate the coming of Christmas with the theme of Christmas Carols.

Each day for the next five days at Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog, you'll be given a task to do related to a Christmas Carol. Complete the task of the day and have a chance to win a special prize.This event is an extra event in addition to our challenges which will still be taking place during their regular time slots.

Day 2: The Tolling of the Bells

The word 'bell' or 'bells' is part of several Christmas carols. Many people are familiar with the song Jingle Bells, A definite classic during the holidays. However, there are some other carols both popular and more obscure where bells are featured. For your chance to win today's image, email us a list of FIVE Christmas Carols other than Jingle Bells, with the word 'bell' or 'bells' as part of the title.

Please email Lisa (DT Coordinator) at 

All entries that contain a list of five carols with the word bell or bells will be entered into a random draw. One winner will win the image pictured above.

Back to my card.  I colored with Twinkling H2o's.  Since I started printing digis I have avoided using water based coloring due to the smearing of the ink.  I decided to try this, and - no smearing!  Has the ink formula changed?  At any rate, I like the shiny look for the bell.  The bg paper looks brown on my screen, but is actually more of a deep burgundy.   I added shiny gold ribbon and a computer generated image.
