So, for my card, I've played with one of the November releases called "Warm Wishes" and it was tons of fun coloring it. I also used some Ranger Icicle Stickles, and however the light hits it is shimmers all kinds of colors. In my picture it looks like I have used silver and gold stickles, but I did not, it's the Icicle one and IRL it looks all silver-ish ;D;D  For my "baubles, bells, anything hanging" I've used these little jingle bells on the bottom of the sentiment and to top it all off I created "icicles" which hang, right? To achieve that I used a strip of bling mesh (that stuff is awesome) I cut it 30 blings long and 4 blings wide to cover my 5.5"x5.5" card on the top. Before I adhered it I cut two of the blings in every second place to make it look like icicles. What do you think?
