First time Jump Ringer!!

Well I have officially become a jump ringer!! Have a couple of packets but have never used them before, and actually for just play, I quite like this one!
This is again a My Craft Studio Construction, again Classic Christmas, and again the Looking Out CD, but when I was playing yesterday, I also came across a verse on Winter Wishes, that seemed quite apt for my Target group, so I noted down where it was for use later. 
These are actually 2 separate images direct from the Looking Out CD, Countryside, and Snowy Church, Countryside was printed on the 4x6 Photo paper, and the Snowy Church, again on A4 supersmooth. I took the colour of the text from part of the tree, which is something you can do in MCS Professional, and then wondered how on earth I was going to incorporate that particular shade into the rest of the design! Ever been there? Wondered how you're going to do it?
Well Stash to the rescue, and thank heavens for the spanking new Ottlite, I did have just that shade of green in a 250 gsm card, and also in a thin organza ribbon!! If it hadnt been for the light I wouldnt have done it!
so 4x6 mounted on some dark blue Pearlescent card, A4 mounted on the Green card, then braided some lengths of the ribbon, and attached it to the back of the green card with good old super-strong tape. But it still needed something..........ok try jump rings with dangly bits me thought.....hmmn what dangly bits can I find...........so some Ivy leaves in green foil, and some silver metal stars. Dont ask me where they came from as the leaves have probably been there for about 10 yrs, and the stars came from somewhere about 6 months ago, as I remember putting them in the little pot, but not much else lol.
Then mounted all that onto some scored and Folded A3 Dark Blue card-stock, a bit of Glitter on the Church roof, and small areas on the 4x6, and yep I like it!!

Hope you do too

Hi Lou
Lovely card and the leaf charms are really nice. You will never go wrong with an Ottlite. I bought mine a couple of years ago now and it is on most of the time and not had to replace the bulb yet. In fact Martyn Parker on C&C has ready my review out quite a few times. I think its best thing since slice bread well one of the best things ha ha. Im buying one for my OH for Christmas to go over his dartboard.
