DS4J #6 - Christmas

We're feeling festive this week over at Digistamps 4 Joy! Yes thats right, the theme for this fortnights challenge is CHRISTMAS!!

For my project I've used the fab Candle image again, I love this for traditional style christmas cards as it always looks great, but not too OTT if you see what I mean? You can find this great image and lots more at the Digistamps 4 Joy online shop.

I've used a card blank with the front cut off and acetate stuck on to replace it. Papers are from DCWV and the swirls are sizzix. The card candy and sentiment are from craftwork cards and the ribbon is from stash. Finally I just couldnt resist adding a little (ok a lot!) of glitter :)

 Thanks for looking!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
A Spoonful of sugar - Snow or snowfakes
The Burtonesque Dolls - Anything goes
Caardvarks - Die cuts (swirls)
Crafty little place - Red White and Green
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Glitter

This is fantastic - what a clever and different card - I tried acetate once it was such a disaster it ended in the bin - after seeing your creation I may well have another go xx
