I have created a pretty Christmas Card and co-ordinating tag for an altered I had created some time ago.  The gorgeous filigree bells are from the Lattice Ornaments Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™.  I have also used Romantic Rose Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Accents and Labels Forty Nestabilities®for my card base.  The paper on my card is from Authentique Paper and on the tin is Kaisercraft.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card. My bling is from Want2Scrap
