Sleigh bells ring, are ya listening?

Ok, so it's not Christmas in July, but in August! I made a card for two challenges: Merry Monday #120 (use a sled, skis, or skates) and Seize the Sketch #26. Here's what I came up with:

 here's the inside:

Sometimes, you just have to let the paper do all the work for you! This is a great example. :) I can't tell you how quick it was to put this card together. (Normally, it takes at least 2 hours!) This card was probably done within a half hours time. (A personal record for me!) I think the most time consuming part was tying on the bells! LOL! I couldn't decide to go with red or gold I used both! I like how it turned out. LOL!

That's all for now. I'm going to sit and relax with a nice glass of wine on the deck, and maybe eat something too. (It could happen!) I hope your weekend is a great one! Thanks for stopping by!

BTW, here are the graphics for the challenge:
