BF Christmas inchies

The topic for the December inchies swap on BF, hosted again by Leigh - thank you, Leigh - is Christmas.

I've used a very light blue silvery reflective card that has silver foiling within it. I stamped an angel on each inchie - from the Hero Arts 'joys of Christmas' stamp set - and heat embossed with silver detail. I then added a few gems and a little crystal ice stickles on the angels' wings.

It was so difficult to try and get a photo of these because of the reflective card. The first picture is a scan, the second a photo and the third a close up photo of one of the inchies.

The current challenge on Inchy by inch is 'Christmas carol', so these are perfect for 'Hark, the herald angels sing'. And Kraftin' Kimmie 10 this week is asking for 'sparkle, baby!'

This week on Stampin' sisters in Christ, the verse for challenge 17 is Matthew 6:19-20 and the challenge is ' to get out your crafting *treasures* and use on your cards or other projects this week, in other words BLING IT UP.' This seems appropriate, as it's using crafting bling to swap with others.

Obviously atm, 'Christmas' is the theme of many challenges, so I'm also linking for:

Sophisticat 15: 'Christmas - anything goes'
One stop craft 59: 'Christmas love'
Sunday stamper: 'Christmas' - and the previous week was 'angels'
Pink elephant 45: 'winter and/or Christmas'
Flutter by Wednesday 87: 'winter - with a butterfly, fairy or angel'
