Jingle Belles 45

It Came Upon A Midnight CLEAR - our challenge for this week was to use something on our card that was clear.  It could be a button, a transparency, slides, etc.  I was in Michael's on Sunday looking for something else in the scrapbook paper section when I spotted this acetate paper doily by Anna Griffin - the vanilla doily is printed on the sheet of acetate.  And then I found these Dress It Up buttons also in vanilla.  The holiday ribbon was on sale for 50% off and this champagne ribbon went well with the vanilla items.  I thought that I had a sheet of copper colored glitter paper at home and thankfully I was right (it's actually called Chestnut by Recollectioins).  The copper looked good against a Chocolate Chip card base. 

I used some nesties for the oval and scalloped oval and stamped the ribbon banner from the set Pines and Poinsettias in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cs and trimmed it up.  The photograph doesn't really do it justice.  Of course it will need special attention to be mailed so that angel doesn't get smushed - there's nothing worse than a smushed angel.

Let's head on over to the Jingle Belles blog to see all the other CLEAR lovelies.
