SOS29: light or white

it's been TOO LONG since i've played along with my lovely darlings over at shopping our stash, so let's remedy that right now! here's this week's brief, from our fearless leader miss carla:

Light and/or White and/or Meljens:
use something from your stash that represents light-
candle, fireplace, stars, Christmas lights,
or decorate a candle, make a lantern, etc,
or make a project that is mostly white
OR Use a Meljens Image!

here's my card:

(transparency: hambly; patterned paper: pink paislee, basic grey; florals & snowflake sticker: making memories; holly: prima; rub-ons: daisy d's; brad: mme; rhinestone swirls: oriental trading co; rose ribbon: tim holtz; stick pins: k&co, joanne essentials; tree die: sizzix; border punch: recollections; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape)

this thing is super-stash-based! i think everything on here is either a few years old or scraps or BOTH; only the tim holtz flowery ribbon is a recent buy, and it's actually my second pack of that stuff!

here's my card again, just so you can see the detail:

you'll have noticed i went with the "white" part of the challenge. and thus, this card fulfills a goal i have had for several years: to make a monochromatic christmas card for my aunt whose favorite color is... wait for it... *WHITE*!!! i've never really succeeded in ending up with something that is almost ENTIRELY white... until now. can i get a "WOOHOO"??!!! :)
