Belles n Whistles Advent Day 7 Project

Happy Monday!!!
I was my turn to post for the
Belles 'n Whistles Advent Calendar.
I kept it short & sweet over there, and
decided to give more details here on my own blog.

I created something special for today's post.
I showed a simple group picture on the BnW blog,
but promised to show more here.
So that's what I'm going to do.

So here I'll show you that very same picture,
and below that I will show some close-ups
with more details.
I hope you enjoy them.

Here is a closer view of the card
because I just HAD to show off how beautiful
she really is!

On the inside, I used "Sitting Belle with Teddy"
she was part of the very first Belles 'n Whistles release.
I just love that she is so versatile.

and last, but not least.....
Here is the candle that I made for this very special
7th day of Advent.
I already have this beauty sitting on the center of my
dining room table.  Oh man do I love the way this came out!

I used an ordinary white pillar candle, and then wrapped
it with wired ribbon.  I love that particular ribbon,
because of it's glittery snowflake design.
For the center strip, I used the same paper that
I used for the card.  It's a perfect match!

The scalloped silver circle is actually aluminum foil
cut using my nestabilities, and then embossed with
a snowflake embossing folder.
I then cut out just Belle a little smaller,
and oh boy is she ever beautiful.

All the little decorations inside the candle holder
are some glass beads, some white snowflake confetti,
course silver glitter, and lastly, just random small
jewelery making beads to add a touch of color.
The top & bottom were obviously decorated with
some ribbon & lace.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and if you haven't

a secret Santa goodie bag, along with one of the
