I hope this post shows up today!  I have drafted this 2 times and lost it somewhere in cyber space!  So here goes again—-

Sweet Season, Snowflake Punch

I punched the snowflake out of contact paper and stuck it on a washed and dried candle holder.  I then applied etching cream that I purchase at a craft store. After letting it set for time specified in the directions, I washed it off, removed the contact paper and Voila!  I added a gingerbread scented votive and Stampin' Up!'s  5/8" Real Red Polka-Dot ribbon to the holder.  To complete the ensemble I made this adorable gift card.  I received a swap at convention from Susy Miller, kept her colors and design and changed the stamp set to Sweet Stems for the saying and Season of Joy to the small flowers in the corners!  Thank you Susy  for the swap!
