Mischief of the Mistletoe, The Glitter Tart's take

Yep, I know not a very good picture.  I am learning the latest Power Point, was using 7, so there is a BIG difference.  I'll get it but for now please bear with me.  

I am a member of an ATC group, Stamp Out Crime.  We read a mystery, create an ATC and share it.  This is my submission this time.  It is based off of Lauren Willig's book The Mischief of the Mistletoe. I am working my way through this series, so far I have read six and created ATC's to go along with them.  You can view the others under the label Stamp Out Crime.
These are fun little Romance mysteries, I have to have me some romance.   
 Alas there is nothing too special about these.  I had to make 8 so I didn't want to go crazy, I've done that in the past.  The snowflake is Masonite that I painted gold.  I roughed up the edges of the paper a bit and rubbed them with gold ink.  
This was the tricky part.  Mistletoe is not out in stores yet and all the how to's online created pieces way too big for what I needed.  Yes, yes, I know what your thinking, just shrink it.  But then these poor little eyes of mine would have hated me!  And I do try to make them happy most of the time.  So I used fabric leaves, yup, and strung seed beads onto fishing line to mimic the white berries.  

Overall I am pleased.  I found it a lot harder to go back to card/ATC making than I thought.  I have to say I do prefer the 3D and altered art a bit more, but it is nice to know that I can still knock out something presentable.

Thanks for visiting!
