Disaster averted -I spent some time carefully adding glass paint onto acetate -the finished results were like shiny fruit drops -not an air bubble in sight . Being my usual impatient self I decide to clean the acetate with a baby wipe and accidentally touched the paint on the pink flower removing the top layer which had almost set. Trying to add a second layer of paint is not a good idea so I used the baby wipe to dab over the surface on all 3 flowers. Once it was dry and this time I did wait I added a coat of gloss to bring back the shine.The colours may not have the depth but I'm still happy with end result.I cut out the panel myself on the base card and on a second piece so that the acetate is sandwiched between.

I quite like Kraft and red together . I covered the whole card first and then using 3 snowflake stamps and one star stamp I did a random pattern on a separate piece of paper. I used silver peel off stickers coloured red with a Promarker pen for the edges and then added a little bling . Merry Christmas stamp from Kaisercraft .Very Nordic.

The paper is from Pebbles and called sparkle ,it's had to see but some of the stars have glitter on them . The sequins are the same colour as the paper.The tree was easy to make and it's a great way to use up scraps .

Wow ,this photo looks nothing like the real thing . The flower and red on the ribbon are dark cherry red not this bright tacky colour . The camera hasn't picked up on the white background paper of swiss dots ,it's just visible below the bow.Down the spine of the flowers I popped some glitter and lots of bling in the middle. I may try and take another photo when the sun has gone in ,it's very sunny today ,all the rooms bathed in sunlight.
